Simply meeting people’s financial needs

For times of need

Helping to lighten the load for individuals

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

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.

“Thank you so much to you and the team for all your help supporting my rent arrears application. I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for myself and my family.”
