From a leaky roof to helping loved ones through treatment, the Journalists’ Charity is here to help.
We provide a safety net for former colleagues and their families when they need it most. The onset of a debilitating condition, a terminal illness, a bereavement, an inability to find employment, a sick child are just a few of the triggers that can set a train of events leading to financial as well as emotional hardship.
Often a small amount of financial aid at a critical time can improve the quality of life. It may be funds to pay for a funeral, a bill that has to be paid, a wheelchair that needs replacing, or it could be a small regular grant.
We help all journalists including those who meet the criteria but have left journalism.
Our aim is to give financial support to meet a need rather than preserve a particular lifestyle and we cannot subsidise those who, in the longer term, find it difficult to make a living from journalism unless through illness or other misfortune.
