The Rowland Hill Fund

Financial help for Royal Mail people, past and present.
Rowland Hill Fund

The Rowland Hill Fund works with the confidential Feeling First Class Support Helpline, who provide a wide range of skills, expertise and resources.

It supports current and former Royal Mail employees who fall on hard times, helping those dealing with sudden illness or long-term sickness, redundancy and disability, or serious financial problems.

During 2017-18, the Fund provided 411 grants with a total value of £495,445.

How can the Fund help?

The Fund offers grants when bills become increasingly difficult to meet, because of unforeseen or changed circumstances such as illness. In addition the Fund can help towards rent, mortgage and utility bill arrears, disability aids, home modifications, hospital travelling expenses, funeral expenses, white goods, heating/boiler repairs and much more.

Independence is vital when you are disabled and independence comes at a financial cost. The Rowland Hill Fund can provide grants towards Electronic Powered Vehicles, specialist equipment, home adaptations and much more.

Helpline

The Rowland Hill Fund works with the confidential Feeling First Class Support Helpline who provide a wide range of skills, expertise and resources.

It is not always about money - sometimes just a friendly voice at the end of a phone suffices to manage issues before they become problems. The helpline assists people of all ages, from different backgrounds, in difficult circumstances, and are non-judgemental in their outlook.

The helpline is available 24/7, call 0345 600 4586, (option 1 then option 4) and is completely confidential.

“Just to say thank you for your generous donation at a time when it was most needed which makes me feel proud to be a member of this organisation. Forever in your debt.”

“I am writing to say thank you so such for the cheque you sent us. My son was diagnosed with leukaemia and is following a 3-year treatment plan. At the moment he is undergoing chemotherapy sessions and this money is a great help towards our hospital travelling expenses. In this difficult time it is wonderful to know what fantastic people are there to help in times of need. Thank you all.”
