Aberdeenshire Benevolent Fund

Help where it is needed most for Aberdeenshire members

The EIS Aberdeenshire Benevolent Fund is funded from membership subscriptions and donations and is available to all members and dependents of members who have been in membership for at least one year. 

Members suffering from financial hardship due to unexpected illness, long term health problems or a sudden change in financial circumstances may be eligible for an award from the Fund.


  • Widows and widowers facing financial difficulties
  • Teachers/lecturers on long term sick leave and their families
  • Former teachers/lecturers in retirement homes
  • Teachers/lecturers who have faced exceptional financial difficulties


Each application is considered individually. No two people have the same circumstances. All information is treated in confidence. 

Emergency grants may be available to members who have had an arrestment on their salary, who face eviction, or who have their gas or electricity cut off.

Contact your local correspondent in the first instance. This page contains details for ABERDEENSHIRE ONLY. 

Each local association has a Benevolent Fund Correspondent who will make contact and arrange to visit members to give help and advice on completing the application form.

The correspondent will also keep in touch with the member in case any further help is required.
