Get help About our grants About our grants Our grants help the children of UK fashion and textile families who are struggling financially. It's why our charity was founded back in 1853. If you are a parent or carer who works, or has previously worked in the UK fashion and textile industry, for at least one year, within the last nine years, you might be able to apply for a grant.
