To apply for an FTCT grant your child must be no older than 18 years old and you must have worked in UK fashion and textiles for at least 1 year, within the last 9 years.

This could be over consecutive years, combining two job roles.

For example:

  • You have worked in a clothes shop for 6 months and dry cleaners for 6 months. 

    As long as you they were both within the last nine years and you have payslips and P60s to show employment for both these jobs you could apply. 

You must also be the parent or guardian for the child who needs a grant.

Refer a family

We always welcome referrals from employers, charities or professionals. We prefer to work directly with the family, but understand there are situations where this is not possible.

In all cases, we advise the professional to contact our grants team, to discuss the families situation in more detail.
