A new £1 million fund has been launched to support the UK’s most vulnerable families during the cost-of-living crisis. The Cash for Kids Cost of Living Fund will target families who have a genuine need for support and are suffering from disadvantage due to the crisis, allowing them to apply for grants of £50 per child which can be used for basic essentials such as food, heating, clothing, and school uniform.

Service providers who support vulnerable children, including schools, social services, health professionals and charities, can apply on behalf of the families they work with. Cash for Kids aims to get the funds to families as soon as possible.

Deadline: Applications will close when all funding has been allocated.
