Information for families of babies born premature or sick about other charities that may be able to help financially.

Are you worried about finances? Try our new Finance Hub to find specific information and practical help.

There are many charities that may be able to help you by providing money, equipment or other support. Some of these charities and organisations can be found under our website's financial support section.

Some charities have a general brief to help families in hard times. Others support particular groups, for example children or people with specific disabilities.

Organisations linked to your work might also help. Many of them have benevolent funds. Think about whether you have links to trade unions, professional associations or the armed services.

You might also be eligible if people in your immediate family have a connection. It is also worth thinking about faith groups – your local parish, synagogue, mosque or temple might be able to help.

The organisation Turn2Us can help you find charities and local foundations that donate money to families in times of need. They have a grants search to help you access any resources quickly and easily.
