Rowland Hill Fund
The Rowland Hill Fund provides financial and practical
assistance to serving and retired Royal Mail and Post Office
employees and their dependants. Most of the charity's funds are
used to help people through long term sickness, redundancy or
reduction in working hours, severe debt as well as disability and
unexpected family problems and relies on employee and pensioner
contributions to be able to continue to provide support.
Distributing grants of some £300K to around 400 individuals and families a year, the fund works with HELP Employee Assistance, the free and confidential helpline which provides a wide range of skills, expertise and resources. The fund doesn't work in isolation either and shares solutions with external charities, large and small. It is not always about money, sometimes just a friendly voice at the end of a phone suffices to help manage issues before they become problems.
The Rowland Hill Fund is a registered charity set up more than
100 years ago as a memorial to Sir Rowland Hill, the great postal
reformer, who introduced the Penny Post. A board of trustees from
all walks of life - including serving and former staff -
administers the charity.
