We're a small charity that helps children of parents or carers who work in UK fashion and textiles. Getting help from FTCT is really simple- all you need to do is just give us a call.
Call us on 020 7170 4117 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Can we help your child?
In the words of one our parents-“I am glad I phoned at last, because even though it took me ages to work up the courage to dial, whatever the result, it started with the first step.”
Here are some of the ways FTCT may be able to help your child:
Grants for the little things which most of us take for granted, like clothing, bedding, white goods or school uniform.
Grants to help children access education, such as specialist equipment, extra tuition, learning support or school necessities.
What makes me eligible to apply for a grant from FTCT?
You will be working or will have previously worked in the UK fashion and textile industry. You have a child or will be the permanent carer for a child aged 0-18 years. Your child has a need which you are unable to meet due to financial hardship. This could be as a result of redundancy, low pay or where your child has an on-going need for which there is no state provision.
98% of those who complete an application form are awarded a grant from FTCT.
We don’t want to keep you waiting; once all the supporting documents have been received we aim to be in touch with the parent or carer within 2 weeks.
We always take the time to listen to and consider every call we receive from our parents and carers. Even if we can’t help you ourselves, we will always try to point you in the direction of someone who can.
