The Freemason must be, or have been, a member of a lodge regulated by the United Grand Lodge of England. The Freemason does not need to be a currently subscribing member, but he must have joined before the need arose.
Please be aware that if the Freemason’s membership is not active, there is a set period of time after the membership ended in which an application can be submitted. Please contact us for further information.
We define those with a strong family connection as a Freemason’s:
- married or life partner
- widow or surviving partner
- divorced or separated partner
- child or stepchild (under 25) in full-time education
- grandchild or step grandchild (under 25) in full-time education
Other relations may also qualify for support if they can demonstrate that a Freemason has provided them with significant financial or physical support.
Those seeking support must be able to demonstrate a need for our grants and services and must pass a financial assessment.
