New Services from The Family Fund

Families with a disabled child can now make their money go further through a new online website - Family Fund extra, and anyone can shop online and help severely disabled children without it costing them a penny more.

All families with a disabled child, as well as disabled young people themselves up to the age of 25 years, can join Family Fund extra for free and enjoy discounts of up to 25 per cent from leading online retailers, including comment, Argos, BSM, Haven Holidays and Stone Computers.

Making a difference by shopping through extra
Anyone who shops online can help severely disabled children at no additional cost to themselves simply by clicking from the extra website through to nearly a hundred leading retailers, including Tesco, Marks and Spencer, Amazon, Boots, Comet, Argos, HMV, John Lewis, B&Q, Dell, PC World and Halfords. As retailers give Family Fund extra commission on every purchase, you can support families with disabled children without spending a penny more.

To get shopping, visit www.familyfundextra.org.uk
If you're a parent or carer with a disabled child, register first to enjoy the discounts. Or just click on "Shop with us" to enable severely disabled children to benefit from retailer commissions on what you buy.
