Fundraisers, and indeed all current or former charity staff, who find themselves in hard times can now make use of a new free benefits, grants and financial help service from the Charity Employees Benevolent Fund (CEBF) in partnership with Turn2us.
The CEBF service offers free, comprehensive, impartial and up to date information and is available to current and former charity employees and their dependents.
Alison Taylor, Director of Turn2us, said: “Turn2us exists to help the 13.5 million people living in poverty in the UK to access the welfare benefits and charitable grants available to them. We are delighted to be working with CEBF to embed Turn2us online tools and resources in their website and enable more people in financial need to source free, good quality information and support to maximise their income.”
CEBF has supported over 100 people since it started to offer help at the end of 2009, demonstrating that the need is there and that a sector-wide benevolent fund is vital. The charity acknowledged the support of Ian Buss, Head of Not for Profit at Lloyds TSB Commercial, for agreeing to fund CEBF’s online development.
