Fashion & Textile Children's Trust

FTCT logo 2018

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.  

How to apply

If you are interested in applying for a grant for your child, you must be:  

  • The parent or full-time carer of a child aged up to 18 years 
  • You or your partner must have worked in the UK fashion and textile industry for a minimum of 1 year, within the last nine years.
