family fund

Postby animalhouse » Fri Dec 16, 2011 11:00 am

just wanted to say i applied for this for my son a few weeks ago and they rang me back last night and were really nice and helpful.

my son is nearly 9 and is homeschooled and we have been trying to get him assessed for the past 2 years with possible dyselxia/asd.

anyway i put on a few items tumble dryer/holiday vouchers/recreation activiites as he has to have 1 to 1 for things such as swimming and he also tried climbing a few weeks ago, to help him build up his confidence and social skilss with other people outside the family.

she said she would put me forward after doing a telephoen assessment last night and said what a couple of years we had with him and my fibro, so don;t know what i will get but just wanted to point anyone towards it who it might help.

i think it is for families with chidlren but they are offering support/respite for the whole family to make their life abit easier.

had a nice xmas pressie.

family fund rang yesterday and offered us £500 holidays vouchers and £300 for tumble dryer or £900 holiday vouchers.

so we are going to take all holidays vouchers as researched and can get a cheap tumble dryer for £150 so would lose the balance.

so looking forward to going somewhere nice and warm next year probably feb/april.

it worth a try for any families out there who might be eligle.

:-D :-D :-D

ps why have rest of smilies been moved on main list - its a bit of a faff getting too them. :-)

My friend has received money from the Family Fund for about 5 years, as her eldest is autistic. She finds it invaluable.
Definitely worth applying for if you have disabled children.

The smillies have been moved in a bid to tidy up the forum a little as they were forcing the submit button right down the page, it is a faff :( :( :( i've found splitting the screen into 2 makes it a bit easier as they display next to the forum page :dunno:
