Family Action has been distributing grants to help people and families in need since we were founded in 1869.

We know that by giving a small grant when it’s needed the most, we can remove immediate financial barriers. This helps families to work through the bigger issues they’re facing such as fleeing abuse or keeping their children in school.

Our grants programmes complement our aim to strengthen families and communities, build skills and resilience and improve the life chances of everyone we work with.

Making a small financial investment can make a big difference to the lives of families like Sarah’s. Read her story to find out how £150 made a difference.

Our small grants programmes focuses on the two areas of Welfare and Education. We believe these to be two of the key areas in which we can really make a difference to support families, both those facing an immediate domestic need and those seeking to improve their educational and employment prospects.
