Family Fund are looking for volunteers across North Yorkshire to help spread the word about the work we do supporting families. We are the UK’s largest charity providing grants and service for families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people www.familyfund.org.uk. We are looking for volunteer fundraisers to help manage collection tins, speak to local community groups and schools and help with local events. We will provide all the resources you need to volunteer, full training and a named staff contact. We believe that all families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people should have the same opportunities as others. Beginning with the most vulnerable, those on low incomes, and considering all conditions against our disability criteria, we aim to make a difference to outcomes for disabled or seriously ill children and young people and the lives of the families raising them across the UK. We provide grants for a wide range of items, such as washing machines, sensory toys, family breaks, bedding, tablets, furniture, outdoor play equipment, clothing and computers. It can be a struggle financially, emotionally and physically for families raising a disabled or seriously ill child, and these grants help break down many of the barriers families face, improving their quality of life and easing the additional daily pressures. If you have experience of or an understanding of the challenges faced by families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people, we want to hear from you.
