Types of fund
Our Benevolent Fund supports our members and their families in their time of need.
The fund provides a confidential service to offer advice and guidance, peer support from Volunteer Visitors and, in some circumstances, financial support, whilst also encompassing a more holistic approach to helping our members and their immediate families who are in need.
Since 1920, our Benevolent Fund has been making a positive impact on the lives of many of our members and their families and has been well supported by both one-off donations and legacies. We would like to continue this tradition of giving, and safeguard our Benevolent Fund for future generations.
I am particularly grateful to the fund for putting the Volunteer Visitor in touch with us. He has been a source of huge support in our situation. It is wonderful to know that the fund has such fantastic people providing local help for members in need.
