Textiles Scotland want to let you know about a children’s charity that can give a little extra financial support to the families of employees in your company.
The Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust is a charity that can give financial support to the families of employees in your textile or manufacturing company. This is a free service to your company and a great way of supporting the families of your employees – whether you’re self employed or work in a larger company, they’re here to help you.
Here’s more details: The Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust gives grants to help pay for essential items, when the basic needs of a child cannot be met. This could be school uniform, clothing, bedding or white goods for the family home (when these are broken or in disrepair). The charity can also give grants for children with additional needs such as mobility equipment, sensory toys, therapies and more. The grants are not a loan and they do not have to be repaid.
The friendly team are already helping lots of families right across the UK fashion and textile industry. If you would like your company employees to benefit from the grants, please call Anna, Director of FTCT for more information or visit www.ftct.org.uk or call 0300 123 9002 and ask to speak to Anna.
In the words of a mum recently been supported by the charity: “To any other parent thinking of applying for an FTCT grant, I would say, just fill in those forms. The forms aren’t complicated. Our grant was my little safety net in my hour of need.”
