Grants / Interest Free Loans


Grants are only considered where there is clear evidence of financial hardship or difficulty. Each case is assessed, and discussed on its own merit with a full financial breakdown provided by the applicant.

The Management Committee will provide grants to the most deserving cases.

Interest Free Loans

Loans are subject to strict guidelines with a clear case of need/hardship being established. Loans for Debt Cases cannot be supported by the Fund. Please refer to your Benevolent Fund Representative or the Fund administrator for further details.

Rowland Betty Charitable Foundation

The Rowland Betty Charitable Foundation was originally established in May 1985 following a donation of £5,000 from Thomas Victor Betty, Squadron Leader in the Royal Air Force (retired), for the purpose of awarding a number of small grants each year to deserving cases.

These Grants have been inactive for a number of years, but following the death of both Squadron Leader Betty and his wife Zena, a further donation has been made to the RUC GC – PSNI Benevolent Fund, which will facilitate the good work of the Charitable Foundation.
