East Antrim Alliance MLA, Stewart Dickson, met today with Family Fund in his constituency office in Carrickfergus.
Mr Dickson said: “It was good to meet with Family Fund and hear about the work they are doing in East Antrim. I also met a local family who had benefited from Family Fund grants. Family Fund is the UK’s largest charity providing grants for families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people.
“With the support of Family Fund, families on low incomes raising disabled or seriously ill children are given the opportunity with grants, for family breaks and days out, to kitchen appliances, furniture, clothing, computers and tablets.
“I want to encourage families who are in similar circumstance to contact my office or Family Fund for further information.
“I would also like to state my support, and encourage others to do the same, for the Tired Out campaign.
"Tired Out is a support hub, created by Family Fund, where families raising disabled and seriously ill children and young people can access and share advice, information and support on sleep issues in one place. It offers useful tips on bedtime routines, diet, and night walking, bedroom environment, products & technology, and medication.”
