How to apply to the Member's Benevolent Trust for assistance
If you are a current or past member of IOM3 (or its predecessors) or a past member of IOM3 staff, you are eligible to apply for financial assistance from the Trust. Please see below for examples of the type of help that MBT can give. This can be on a one-off or an ongoing basis, for specific items in times of need or hardship or for financial help.
Confidential requests for assistance are preferred in writing addressed to:
The Honorary Secretary
The Member’s Benevolent Trust
297 Euston Road
In an emergency or with an informal enquiry:
Telephone +44 (0)7889 123373 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Applicants will be sent a standard application form. Once completed and returned a file number will be allocated to ensure complete anonymity so that no information can be transferred to the Member’s file at IOM3.
There is then a preliminary review of the returned form. This is usually followed by a visit to the applicant by one of our established regional visitors or a Trustee to talk through the application. This is an opportunity to clarify any details and to assess the type of assistance best suited to the needs of the applicant. Following the visit, the Board of the MBT assesses each application thoroughly and makes its decision.
