Food Poverty

Family Fund has published findings from a survey of 110 parents and carers of disabled or seriously ill children in Northern Ireland who had previously received grant support from the charity, which show that: 79% of the parents and carers have struggled to afford healthy food for their disabled or seriously ill children in the last year; 46% reported missing a meal in order to feed their children instead.
