The National Memorial Family Fund is also administering the United Families & Friends Campaigns Children’s Christmas Gift Fund as part of its second grants round. UFFC have set aside up to £2,800 to be distributed to applicants that meet the criteria set out below.
Important Note: This fund will make a £50 Christmas payment to any affected child whose parent or carer was a victim of state custody death. The funds must be used for the direct benefit or enjoyment of that child over the Christmas & new year period.
All enquiries should go to UFFC in the first instance and not the National Family Fund.
The only conditions that apply are that:
- The child must be under 16 years of age
- A parent or carer of the child has died in state custody
- Families that received Family Fund or Gift Fund awards in round one (ended in Sept 2020) are not generally eligible for this scheme
- Interested families should first complete the UFFC expression of interest form (see below)
The completed form will be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a handful of volunteers so responses may be delayed.
