Benevolent Fund Case studies and Testimonials
Benevolent Fund Case studies and Testimonials

Grants made to applicants are varied to cover essential household repairs, warm clothing, white goods, furniture etc. The Fund has intervened in situations where members face unmeetable but short term, financial outgoings that could have led to serious consequences or while waiting for funds to be freed up elsewhere. On occasions the Benevolent Fund works in partnership with another benevolent fund contributing 50/50 to an identifiable need.

The work of the BF can have a far-reaching benefit with appropriate intervention and applies to members of all ages and concerns. Claims are carefully considered and often identify areas of support that may short circuit a persistent financial impasse, ease a disability or address a short term matter, thereby lifting a weight from a person's or family's hardship and enabling self-determination and independence for the future.

Some messages of thanks upon completion of an application (all repeated here with the permission of the original applicants):

“The grant has made my house a much more comfortable place to live.”

“These have been a difficult few months and your generosity has helped us hugely.”

“The application was carried out very sensitively in a reassuring way.”

“I look forward to starting my new role and will also appreciate this help I have received.”

“The Fund’s intervention has already lifted the family’s spirits and will hopefully reap dividends in the long term.”
