Support for Life for the Vauxhall Community
The Vauxhall Welfare Fund is a registered charity that supports Vauxhall employees in both the south and north of the country, Vauxhall retirees, their spouses and their dependents. It also covers employees and retirees of IBC Vehicles and retirees of ADC & AWD.
Every so often, through no fault of their own, someone’s circumstances can change, leaving them suffering financially.
You can apply to the Fund if you are suffering financial hardship or if you have experienced a need for an item that is outside of your means.
It will make grants, purchase items or pay for repairs. It has supported people with a large number of requests. Broken fences, mobility aids, household items, help with home costs etc.
Over the last three years the Vauxhall Welfare Fund has supported over 200 people who have a connection to Vauxhall.
They have Trustees that meet every month to discuss the cases . Every case is discussed on its own merit. Every case is treated confidentially. If you do not have excessive savings and you are in need then the Welfare Fund may be able to help you. A form will need to be completed and signed, but there is a Welfare Visitor that is willing to help you with this.
If you are in difficulty and think you may be eligible for help from the Vauxhall Welfare Fund then please do not hesitate to contact us.
