Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) - Money and benefits

Families who have children with complex needs and disabilities can apply for grants from the Family Fund.

If you are on a low income you can apply for items that will help meet your child's additional support needs and make life easier such as a kitchen appliance like a fridge, cooker or washing machine; clothing and bedding; sensory or play equipment; technology for your child, or a much-needed family break.

To find out more and apply for the funding please visit: Family Fund: Apply for a grant.
