About the Trust:

  • The Social Workers’ Benevolent Trust offers help to social workers experiencing financial difficulties because of sickness, bereavement, family difficulties, increasing frailty or sudden catastrophe.

  • Since its inception in 1971, the Social Workers' Benevolent Trust remains an independent charity with its own Trustees all of whom are qualified or retired Social Workers.

  • It is a small charity with limited funds. The Trustees meet seven times a year to consider requests to provide grants that will make a tangible difference to the applicants' lives.

  • The number of applications continues to grow. On average approximately 150 - 170 applications are considered and grants totalling around £75,000 are distributed each year. These are to meet specific debts and needs of social workers in hardship.
