About the fund

The RFS Benevolent Fund was established to provide RFS members and their families with support when they need it most. We are a charity focused on providing RFS members with practical, tangible and compassionate relief from poverty, distress or other significant hardship, including the families of firefighters killed on duty and those injured on the fireground.

We are able to provide standalone support when no other help is available or to work in tandem with other services, depending on the individual circumstances. Assistance might take the form of counselling and support services, links to other services in the wider or help from the RFS in times of need.
