Potential Funding Options for Families
Here at Fledglings we understand that no matter how hard we try to keep our prices low, products for families with special needs are expensive. Here we have listed some resources that may be able to help with funding. For all of them they will have their own criteria that you will need to meet. Please read the criteria of each carefully.
Family Fund provides a wide range of grants to families raising a disabled child. There are set criteria, but for those families who are eligible this is one way of getting help.
Although, adaptive clothing is not listed on their website, you may be able to get funding for items from our website. The application form can be downloaded here.
Please note that when you get to page 7, when you complete the 'Your Grant' section you must specify that you need adaptive clothing, swm or shoes etc. If you do not use the word Adaptive and you are eligble you may get funding for a general clothing shop. Being as specific as you can be in this section including any links will help you get the correct the correct funding.
