Fashion and Textile Children's Trust Grants for families financially affected by Coronavirus

Delivered by Fashion & Textile Childrens Trust


These grants can help parents and carers who have worked in the UK fashion or textile industry and whose household income has reduced as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

If you're struggling to make ends meet, these grants can fund items for your children such as clothing, bedding and essential household items. 

When we can help your family

These grants typically help families who are already struggling financially (in arrears on your household bills or have debt) OR have limited savings to cover lost earnings.  

You might want to apply if you or your partner's income has been affected in any of the following ways:

  • Made redundant or were already redundant and now can't get a new job
  • Have been furloughed (temporarily laid-off) and can't afford to fund the 20% or more reduction in income
  • Have been put on reduced working hours 
  • Have been made to take unpaid leave to care for your children
  • Have lost self employed income and are not eligible to apply for the new Self Employed Income Support Scheme (SEISS) and can't fund your lost income. OR can't fund your lost income until the SEISS scheme pays out
  • Have to self isolate and are not entitled to furlough/sick pay or your employer can't/won't pay it
