Bank Workers Charity
The Bank Workers Charity (BWC) exists to help bank employees and their families across the UK. They do this by providing information, advice, expert support and, in some cases, financial help.
What do BWC do?
BWC will work with you and tailor their service to your needs. They can help with a range of issues whether work or home related, including:
- Mental health – counselling or other therapies to look after your mental wellbeing. Therapies are available for children from the age of 8.
- Relationships – guidance and counselling to improve your relationships, move on when one ends or get help if you’re experiencing domestic abuse.
- Caring responsibilities – helping you find out how to access financial, legal and practical support for you and the person you care for.
- Disability and long-term conditions – including welfare benefits and home adaptations.
- Bereavement – support to help you deal with the emotional and practical aspects of losing someone close to you.
How can BWC help?
A team of Client Advisors are available by phone, and they work with partners such as Anxiety UK, Relate, Leonard Cheshire Disability, and the National Autistic Society to deliver specialist support to clients.
In some cases, they are also able to provide financial assistance in the form of one-off grants. Some of the items they’re able pay for include items such as mobility aids and equipment, funeral expenses, respite breaks and care, furniture or even general living expenses.
