    Hi @pierce202, I'm sorry you have been waiting. I imagine they have a lot on at the moment. Here is a statement that they put on their website:
    Because of the coronavirus outbreak we have fewer colleagues than usual responding to your queries, and understandably more families contacting us than ever before. This is having an impact on how quickly we can respond to your queries, and for this we are truly sorry. 
    Here is the full article: Family Fund and Coronavirus

    I hope you don't have to wait much longer. :)
