All applications must be submitted on a standard application form and provide full financial details. All income is taken into consideration including PIP and attendance allowance, applications should be supported by one or more referees, for example; doctor, nurse, social worker, local clergyman, advice worker, etc. Each year The National Benevolent Charity receives many more applications for financial assistance than it has funds available for distribution. For the time being, preference is given to applicants who do not meet the qualifications of other benevolence charities, however, all applications are considered by the Welfare Committee.
