The nature of support FTCT grants have given this year remains the same as when the charity was founded back in 1853. Our charity, the Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust has been supporting families in the UK fashion and textile industry for over 160 years. It remains our job today, to provide practical financial support towards family costs whenever challenging or unexpected circumstances arise.

Our grants criteria covers workers in all aspects of the UK fashion and textile industry including textiles, fashion, soft accessories and soft furnishings, from retail to design, manufacture to administration.
