The Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust (FTCT) was founded over 150 years ago, to support disadvantaged children, whose parents or carers work in the UK fashion and textile industry.
By providing grants to support all aspects of their education and wellbeing we support hundreds of children every year.
Our grants can provide access to education through funding for extra tuition, learning support or school necessities, in addition to essential items, like clothing, bedding and shoes.
To hear how FTCT grants have helped families in your industry, visit our success stories page.
We are keen to work with UK fashion and textile companies up and down the country, to raise awareness of how FTCT grants can help the children of employees across the industry.
