Family Action's Grants Programmes

Family Action has been making grants to families and individuals in need since its foundation in 1869. Our grants programmes complement and enhance our mission of helping families to find solutions to problems, supporting them to become safer, stronger and more optimistic about their future.

Poverty remains a fact of life in modern Britain. For many families and individuals the struggle to meet basic needs and to pursue educational and employment ambitions remains a live and pressing issue, particularly during the current economic downturn.

Our welfare and education grants programmes help to address the real needs of disadvantaged families and individuals, both those facing an immediate domestic need and those seeking to improve their educational and employment prospects.

Family Actions Grants Service also aims to help individuals wanting to study find funding from other grant giving charities through the provision of our Educational Grants Search and Grants Guide.
