The project aims to provide crisis funds to families who have had a child diagnosed with cancer or leukaemia, as this can often mean unexpected financial burdens such as loss of income if a parent has to give up work to become a full-time carer, household bills, travel or special equipment such as a bath lift or installing a shower unit. For some families there may also come a time when they need help with funeral bills. This funding will enable CLIC Sargent to provide 150 grants to these vulnerable families.
