Family Fund

Every family should be able to enjoy mealtimes together, and the little moments that matter. For some families, this isn’t always possible. That’s why McCain are helping Family Fund to support families with disabled or seriously ill children.

As part of our continued support for this incredible charity, McCain are pledging another £1 million of support so that together we can make teatimes easier to enjoy for families with disabled or seriously ill children.

This is on top of the £1.3 million we have already donated to date, taking our total to at least £2.3 million.

Please read on to find out how you can support Family Fund.

Who are Family Fund and how can you help?

Family Fund is the UK’s largest charity, providing grants and services to families on low incomes raising disabled, and seriously ill children and young people.

Raising a disabled child costs three times more than a child without additional needs. In these difficult times, with rising prices for fuel and food and post-pandemic debt, families raising disabled children need more support than ever. You can help us provide grants for essential family items such as kitchen appliances, clothing, bedding or furniture, specialist play equipment or adapted toys. Even a small donation makes a big difference. More information about Family Fund can be found at
