The Insurance Charities works throughout the UK and Ireland to support current and former insurance employees and their dependants.
Last year, it awarded more than £912,000 to help pay for household appliances, school uniform, funeral costs, rehabilitation and property adaptations, among other items.
You may have been impacted by domestic abuse, a relationship breakdown, illness or redundancy, and may be needing one-off or ongoing financial support. Perhaps a colleague you know is going through a difficult time due to unexpected misfortune and could benefit from getting in touch.
All applications will be dealt with in confidence – the charity is independent from any employer or professional body. It doesn’t matter what role you’ve had in the profession and both working and non-working people can apply.
The charity can also deliver practical support where needed through its partners at Shelter, Alzheimer’s Society, and Aware in Ireland.
