The Care Professionals Benevolent Fund is the trade charity for the Care
Profession. We will consider applications from individuals, widows, widowers,
partners, orphans or any other dependant who:
1. Have worked directly within the Care Profession – either the
employee or employer can have the industry connection.
2. Have worked for one continuous year in the past five
3. Have previously worked for seven years in their lifetime
4. Are currently working in the Care Profession
5. Have worked within the UK (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) in a registered domiciliary or residential care service (as defined by CQC, CSSIW or SCRC)
6. Have limited savings and resources
Assistance will take the form of:
Grants are aimed at individuals, not organisations.
Essential needs grants
These are awarded for assistance towards the cost of an item or need considered essential for the well being or improving the quality of life of the applicant (for example for the purchase of a mobility vehicle.)
These are awarded to applicants of working age who have suffered a sudden loss of income due to bereavement, illness or injury. Awards will be time limited (e.g. for one year) and the grant aims to assist with the general living costs of the applicant to enable them to adjust to their new circumstances.
Top Up Grants
These are awarded to people who have a very limited income and are aimed at assisting applicants with their general living costs.
We will not consider any applications for grants until all statutory sources have been tried and cannot help in the following areas:
- Education related costs, such as private school fees, fees for educational courses, student maintenance and student loan repayment.
- Most private medical treatments
- Care fees shortfalls
- Grants are limited to a minimum level of £250 and a maximum level of £5,000 per application
The CPBF can also advise on a wide range of organisations that offer
financial help and other relevant assistance.
We are not, however, licensed to undertake debt counseling services ourselves.
