Throughout this pandemic we have seen significant strain placed on fashion and textile families and we continue to receive high level of demand for our services. Every week, we are giving an average of £10,000 in grants to ease the financial pressure on industry families and ensure their children have all the life's essentials they need. 

Although difficult, this year has also shown the strength of communities and how we can together to support each other through exceptional times.

The service we provide to families and their children is completely free at point of use. Our grants are gifts from our charity and do not have to be repaid by the families who receive them.

But our service is not free to run and with more demands for our grants than ever, we need the continued support of passionate individuals, who believe in what we do and want to ensure our service continues for as long as it is needed. 

It’s our industry – let’s support each other, together.
