Supporting The Ben is easy and there are many ways to help. Each year, we need to raise £300k to support former and current members of our trade facing financial, social and emotional difficulties. Please take a moment to see how you can help us reach that figure this year.
The Glass Half Full campaign is now live! We're looking to increase the number of people we support across Scotland so if you, or anyone you know, have fallen on hard times and require financial support, please get in touch. More information on how we can help can be found here #GlassHalfFull
