The Process – What To Expect

You will be in contact with a trained adviser who will arrange for a telephone interview, lasting about 40 minutes.

They will discuss:

  • What you are applying for
  • Details of income, expenditure and any savings
  • Documentary evidence that supports your application, including recent bank statements, details of your Royal Mail service, medical evidence and cost estimates, if appropriate

The advisors will prepare a report detailing your position and, with your agreement, they will forward the report to the Fund for consideration by Trustees.

Please note: We do not give loans


Third Party Applications

If you are a third party organisation such as another charity, or a Local Authority, you can apply on behalf of a client.
