    Hello @leanne0112 and welcome to the community.

    You might find it easier to contact the family fund directly and ask them directly as this is likely to give you the best answer: 01904 550055 or [email protected]

    If they are not able to assist please come back as there are alternative ways to get laptops. Also have you given any thought to the software you daughter will be using? There are a range of issues which may need to be considered and solutions for many of them, and this includes what happens if something goes wrong with the laptop? Even simple changes to settings could help your daughter, but these can be looked at after your daughter has got a laptop.

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    Hi @leanne0112

    Have you checked your benefits?

    If so, take a look at grants.
