Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust (FTCT) helps children of parents who work or have previously worked in the UK fashion and textiles industries. This includes regular clothes shops, department stores and supermarkets that sell clothing, like Tesco or Asda. 
FTCT helps hundreds of these families every year with grants to support their children (aged 0-18 years).

The charity's current area of focus is grants for additional support (typically between £750 - £1,500) for items such as mobility equipment, sensory toys, learning support, speech therapy and respite activities.
