What parents say about FTCT Emma's Story "When I applied to the FTCT there was a lot going on. I'd recently split from my ex-partner and our house had been flooded by the drains outside. In the process of painting my boy's room, the contractors broke their bed." "Applying to the FTCT was so easy. The email comms and form were so quick and straight forward. I genuinely couldn't thank the FTCT enough and what the grant meant to my family. I didn't have to think about getting a loan or adding to my debt just to buy the boys a bed. The charity was like a light that came on during a really difficult period." Read Emma's Story
