The Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust (FTCT) gives financial grants to children (up to 18 years) where one or more parent/carer works in the UK fashion and textile industry- for at least one year within the last 9 years.
A grant is a financial donation which doesn't have to be repaid. It must be used to buy essential items for your children such as school uniform or clothing.
Grants are also available for children with disability or additional needs and can fund specialist items including mobility equipment, therapy and educational support.
