    The Family Fund's Your Opportunity scheme supports disabled and seriously ill young people, aged 18-24 years old who are living at home. Young people cannot apply on their own, the application has to come from the parent or carer.

    Funding for Your Opportunity is limited, and funders will accept applications from families on a first-come, first-served basis until the funding is fully allocated.

    • You have not received a Your Opportunity grant on behalf of this young adult in the past 12 months 
    • You have lived in the UK for the last six months
    • You have a low household income, or if you receive a benefit such as Universal Credit, Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit etc.

    How to apply
