Help for families during lockdown

As the country goes into a second lockdown it is a worrying time for many, particularly parents with children to care for. Our charity is working with families every week who are feeling the ongoing impact of reduced pay or now in some cases redundancy.

By paying for essential items for children aged 0-18 years, our grants can provide practical support to parents and carers who work for fashion and textile companies.

Our criteria is much broader than it sounds and includes employers such as supermarkets, laundrettes, dry cleaners  and some delivery drivers.

Please use the links below to find out more and check if your family could apply.
