How we can help
DO YOU QUALIFY?
To qualify for the Irish Grocery Benevolent Fund’s assistance, an individual needs to meet the following criteria:
- Previous experience of working within the grocery sector.
- A person(s) who is or have been engaged in the trade and shall include widows, widowers, and immediate dependents of such person’s
- Able to demonstrate a degree of financial hardship
We help both full-time and part-time workers and partners are also eligible. Both partners can be beneficiaries if they satisfy the criteria. The benefit can transfer to spouses and long term partners on the death of the beneficiary.
We help a wide variety of people who used to work in our industry, from warehousemen to checkout operators to delivery drivers and each case is assessed on its individual merits.
The Welfare Committee reviews all applications for assistance and to make or refuse payments and grants.
