Government boost Child Trust Fund allowance for families with disabled children

Posted: 18/03/10

Treasury Minister Sarah Macarthy-Fry today visited the Rainbow centre in Queen's Park to announce extra money for Child Trust Funds for families with disabled children.

Families with disabled children face many barriers - not only do much loved children with disabilities involve extra costs, caring for them also often limits their parents ability to earn. Karen said: "I warmly welcome this development and the additional recognition of the needs of disabled children. I urge constituents to make sure that if they have not already set up a Child Trust Fund to do so.
