Hardship grants

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.

You could be eligible for help if you currently work in construction or if you’ve done so previously. 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.”
