Family Days and Awards

Family Day

Our Family Day is being held on Saturday 20th May, 2017 at Wyre Forest School, Habberley Road, Kidderminster, Worcestershire DY116F

It’s a great opportunity for all families to get together (including extended family and carers) and spend time together. Families can share stories and experiences and practical information. Take a look at our family day photos in May 2015.

There will be a Travel Award for UK & Ireland based PMS Families attending the Family Day applications available later in Feb/March 2017.


To date PMSF UK have been able to provide our families with over 40 awards for PMS children and their siblings. Awards going towards horse riding, swimming, sports & art clubs and additional therapies. The trustees at PMSF UK have agreed to provide a number of different type of awards going forward so please look below and if you’d like to apply for your family then click on the application below and e-mail the completed form to:


Applications can be submitted at anytime and will be reviewed 3 times a year. Families will be informed shortly after the cut off date with the final decision. January 31st 2017, May 31st 2017 and September 30th 2017. If applying for more than one award please complete an application form for each award and indicate which is your priority.



  • PMSF UK is a small charity and will seek to support as many awards as it can afford. The trustees will make decisions on awards and affordability.
  • Families can apply for multiple awards and may apply several times (within the same year or multiple years). The trustees will seek to share the benefits across the whole community; so will take re-applications into account if they need to prioritise awards.
  • Families are responsible for any tax obligations associated with receiving an award.
