“Relief in Need”

The Trustees shall apply income for relief in need in relieving either generally or individually persons resident in the area of benefit, as shown on the Plan (see pdf link ), who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress by making grants of money or providing or paying for items, services or facilities to reduce the need, hardship or distress of such persons.

The Trustees  may pay for such items, services or facilities by way of donations or subscriptions to institutions or organisations which provide or undertake in return to provide such items, services or facilities for such persons.

In exceptional cases the Trustees may grant relief to persons otherwise eligible therefor who are resident immediately outside the area of benefit but in the opinion of the Trustees ought nevertheless for sufficient reason to be treated as if resident therein or who are located for the time being therein.

Does any individual or group receive preference?

No.  Each application is considered on its own merits, and Trustees do not give reasons for any decision they make.
