About the Financial Assistance Fund

SOFT UK holds a number of Family Events during the year. These provide a vital form of support for many families by giving them information, providing face-to-face support and allowing them to meet with other families with similar experiences.

SOFT UK recognises the financial circumstances of some families may prevent them from attending such events. To ensure our support is available to everyone, we have a small budget for Financial Assistance to enable families, who would otherwise be unable, to attend our events.

If your family would have genuine financial difficulty in attending one of our events, please read this guidance note carefully and use the attached application form.

Please note, the provision of Financial Assistance is dependent on budget and the volume of applications received. We cannot guarantee the outcome of applications.
