Meet the team helping civil engineers and their families
The Ben Fund is managed by an executive staff team and Board of Trustees. Its work is supported by its dedicated network of volunteer visitors.
Led by Kris Barnett, CEO, the staff team has combined experience of over 40 years working with the Ben Fund. The team consists of an Administrator, Casework and Marketing Administrator, Head of Casework and Services, Finance Manager and Marketing Manager.
Currently led by Teresa Frost, IEng FICE, the Trustee Board consists of 12 ICE members and meets quarterly to set out the strategic direction of the Charity and ensure it is delivering its charitable objects, as outlined in its governing documents.
The Ben Fund has a network of around 80 volunteer visitors, each of whom are ICE members and civil engineers, who visit applicants to talk through their personal circumstance and see how the Ben Fund can best support them.
