SUWIWe have all been there. Your child needs a new mattress; they outgrow their school uniform, or their PC or laptop breaks making it impossible for them to complete their homework. Any of these extra expenses can suddenly set our monthly budget waaaay off balance.

Recognising that parents and carers in the UK fashion and textile industry may, if the need arises, want a quick and accessible grant to cover the cost of one-off items for their child, FTCT has introduced Small Grant Applications. This means you can now apply without submitting a full financial statement!

Small grants are there to help you cover the cost of specific items such as school uniforms, bedding, clothing, furniture etc. Anything that will take the pressure off the cost of day-to-day living.

Once your application is submitted, our cases committee will have an answer for you within 21 working days! So, please don’t worry about calling us we are here to help you every step of the way.

If you have any questions, or would like to get the ball rolling, please call Dora on 0300 123 9002 or email and if we believe we can take your case forward, we will send you an application form.

PLEASE NOTE: It is vital you have evidence of your trade connection before we can process your application.
