We are in the business of fashion & textiles. We are the UK voice and meeting place for suppliers of fashion & textiles providing: practical support, export advice, information exchange and a voice - to government - to retailers.
UKFT has added its support to the Fashion & Textile Children's Trust (FTCT), a charity which supports families who work in the UK fashion and textile industry. Founded in 1853 the charity has grants available for children-starting at £250-to fund basic items such as bedding, clothing, learning tools, etc.
The charity’s criteria covers all aspects of the industry including, womenswear, menswear, interiors, accessories, from design, manufacture and retail, through to distribution and head office functions.
FTCT would like to hear from UKFT members who could benefit from extra financial support for their child’s everyday essentials.
UKFT is extremely pleased to lend its support to spreading the word about the work of FTCT. Given the pressure on many families working in the sector in these tough times, it is important to let our members know of any financial help that is available.
