Cost of Living Support Fund

Child in bed using a ventilator

Families caring for a seriously ill child dependent on vital equipment to stay alive have been able to receive much-needed support from our Cost of Living Support Fund this Winter.

The fund provided over 600 families who are struggling with spiralling energy costs a grant of £250 to help pay the running costs of essential medical equipment.

Families facing financial pressures at this time can contact our helpline on 0808 8088 100 or via live chat at the top of this page to discuss possible support available to them. The helpline is open Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm, providing listening and often financial and practical help where families are eligible.
