Fashion & Textile Children's Trust (FTCT)

If you are a parent raising a child with a disability or additional needs, an FTCT grant could help to fund specialist equipment, therapies, sensory toys and more.

About our grants

Our grants help the children of UK fashion and textile families who are struggling financially. It's why our charity was founded back in 1853 .

If you are a parent or carer who works, or has previously worked in the UK fashion and textile industry, for at least one year, within the last nine years, you might be able to apply for a grant.

If you are no longer in work, but you or your partner has worked in the fashion and textile industry for more than one year, (within the last 9 years) you can still apply for a grant. Here are just a few examples of the items FTCT grants can fund:

  • Mobility equipment
  • Seating aids
  • Sensory toys
  • Specialist clothes
  • Educational support
  • Essential items, e.g. clothing, for all children in the family

What do we mean by fashion and textiles?

Fashion and textiles is any UK business which designs, sells, manufactures, services or distributes clothing, footwear, soft furnishings or fabrics. There’s a bit more detail on this here .

Please note, if you have worked in any part of a supermarket that sells a clothing range, this gives you a valid trade connection and you might be able to apply.

Read more information about our grants and check if you can apply.
