Providing assistance in troubled times

Established in 2000, the Benevolent Fund of the College of Optometrists and the Association of Optometrists provides financial assistance to optometrists and their dependents in times of need. This could be monthly payments to elderly or ill members of the profession or the widow/ers of deceased practitioners, financial help with beneficiaries' electricity, gas or telephone bills or residential care fees, and grants to help infirm beneficiaries to go on holiday. 

The Benevolent Fund team can also put you in touch with agencies that will provide completely confidential support and advice on issues such as disability, addiction and debt.

Any College member in need of support can apply to the fund.

Visit the Benevolent Fund website to find out more, or contact Lynne Brown, Administrative Secretary - email jeloc1@gmail.com, phone: 01787 223800.
