Benevolent funds

Depending on where you or your family members work, or have worked in the past, you may find that additional help and support is available from specific benevolent funds.

There are hundreds of benevolent funds across the UK. These can be linked to trades, professions, unions, geographic localities or any of the armed services.

They have usually been set up to provide financial support and practical help during difficult times. They may be able to offer help to carers.
