Making ends meet from day to day can be a constant balancing act – and of course it's impossible to know what might be around the corner.

From funding for essential everyday things to emergency grants that can turn a person’s life around, the Ben Fund can help make a real difference.

As an ICE member, if you, or your immediate family, are experiencing financial difficulties, please get in touch.

One-off payments

We can provide one-off grants to get you through a particularly challenging time, perhaps to purchase a specific piece of equipment or an item that would make your life easier.

Examples include disability aids and help with property maintenance or necessary home improvements.

Ongoing support

We can also offer monthly grants for up to six months, sometimes longer depending on circumstance.

This might involve supporting members through illness, periods of unemployment or those facing a temporary setback.
