Covid-19 pandemic funding: the Children and Families Minister Vicky Ford announced £10 million of funding to Family Fund, which will help low-income families with seriously ill or disabled children with the cost of equipment, goods or services - from washing machines and refrigerators to sensory and educational equipment that they might not otherwise be able to afford.
The grants are typically worth £400 to £500 per family, but vary depending on need.
