Making your life easier

What we do

HOW WE CAN HELP

The Fund can help towards the cost of purchasing specific ‘one-off’
essential items such as:

  • Boiler replacement or repairs
  • Dentures and emergency non-cosmetic dental treatment
  • Large items of furniture
  • Spectacles
  • Stair lifts
  • Walk-in showers
  • Wheelchairs
  • White goods

We prefer you to contact us before you commit to a purchase but
depending on the urgency of the need we recognise this may not
always be possible. So, occasionally, retrospective applications will be
considered if submitted within a reasonable timescale.

We have answered many frequently asked questions about the Fund in
our leaflet, please follow this link.

HELP WITH THE PAYMENT OF MEDICAL TREATMENT OR CARE HOME EXPENSES

Regrettably we are unable to contribute to funding of this kind, and
can only help with purchasing items of a more tangible nature such as those
illustrated above. However, this list of examples is not meant to be
exhaustive.

DOES THE FUND PROVIDE A WINTER FUEL ALLOWANCE?

No, the Fund cannot provide this support but instead you could apply to the Bank Workers Charity (BWC) for help with payment of winter fuel bills.

The BWC can also provide further information, advice, expert support and, in some cases, financial help other than for winter fuel bills. Find out more about the Bank Workers Charity.

You can also check what other help may be available towards energy costs. See the Turn2us website for more details, as well as a mechanism to determine Benefits to which you may be entitled.
