Helping to lighten the load for individuals

Help for individuals and their dependants needing emotional support, information, guidance and advice.

When financial difficulty strikes – perhaps as a result of redundancy or a period of unemployment – it can have a devastating impact on individuals and their families.

Anyone who has, or currently works in the construction industry or their dependants, could be eligible for help. In the past, the Trust has lightened the load for people in a number of ways.

If you’ve been directly affected, or you’re an organisation or employer who knows of someone who may need support, the B&CE Charitable Trust is here to help.

"I wish to thank you for your very generous donation to help pay for my roof repair. I shall be eternally grateful for all the help you have given me." Hardship grant recipient
