Family Fund Business Services (FFBS) are collaborating with BBC Children in Need to deliver the Emergency Essentials programme.

The programme provides items that meet a child’s most basic needs such as a bed to sleep in, a cooker to provide a hot meal and other items or services critical to a child’s wellbeing.

Applications for this programme can be made by approved referrers on behalf of an eligible child or family.

The Emergency Essentials Programme is currently operating as normal and applications are processed within 10 working days.
