Our resident Almoner answers your questions about the support provided by the MCF.
I need an operation that is available on the NHS but I’m facing a six month wait. Can you help?
Yes – We can meet the full or partial cost of medical treatment if you are on an NHS waiting list in excess of 12 weeks and you cannot easily afford the cost of private treatment.
Do you provide support for non-RMBI care home fees?
No – We can, however, refer you to our Advice & Support Team – they are very experienced in these type of enquiries and can advise you with regards to possible non-masonic support such as the Local Authority or the NHS.
I’m a new lodge Almoner. Is there a guide to alternative support from other charities?
Yes – You can find information about support from other charities and other resources on our dedicated Almoner resources page.
