Join our Branch Welfare Project
Recent studies have shown that many of our beneficiaries are lonely, socially isolated or housebound.
We're looking for branches of all sizes from across the UK and ROI to test new activities which aim to help these beneficiaries in your local community.
Participating branches can choose activities such as coffee mornings, phone a friend or basic gardening services and will be asked to report on a monthly basis. This will help us to evaluate success, share lessons learned and identify the costs and the benefits of the activities.
Information gathered during the 3 month trial period will be used to develop a framework for welfare provision within our branches. The Membership Council will be asked to approve these activities and include them in the framework for branch policy and procedures from 2016 onwards.
If you want to participate and have a say in how welfare can be delivered from the branches, please use our online form to register or contact your MSO or County/District Chairman. You can also email email@example.com.
