For Freemasons, for families, for everyone
ADVICE AND SUPPORT FOR MASONIC FAMILIES
Our Advice and Support Team provides free, confidential and independent support for all Masonic families.
This year alone, the Team has assisted over 3,000 people and made over 800 visits to Freemasons and their families to help with a financial, health, care or family need.
HOW THE TEAM CAN HELP
The Team offers practical guidance, assisting with applications for support from the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF) and many other organisations.
They can help you through difficult times by understanding your needs, discussing potential solutions and directing you to organisations and services that can help. They can help you to:
Organise care and respite care, either in your home or in an RMBI or non–Masonic residential care home. They can provide advice on dementia support services and avoiding social isolation.
Access medical and dental treatment, mobility aids, home adaptation and maintaince grants, provided both by the MCF and other organisations.
• Support children and young people with education and well-being needs
• Signpost State and Local Authority benefits and free services
The Team also organise four UK holidays for single people and couples. Find out more about how the Team helps in our Advice, counselling and other support leaflet >>
