If you are going through a difficult time in your life, we and your lodge Almoner are here to help. Many people find that talking to their Almoner before contacting the MCF is a good way of understanding a little bit more about the support and services we can provide.
Almoners are there to listen and support without judgement. So should you wish to enquire about support through your lodge Almoner, here is what you can expect:
A meeting with your Almoner
Your Almoner will arrange a time and place to meet or call that’s most convenient for you. Many people prefer their Almoner to visit them in the comfort of their own home, but it can be in a coffee shop or even after a lodge meeting if you would prefer.
Explaining your situation
In order to better support you, your Almoner will need to know about the situation you’re facing. Remember, you can give as much or as little information as you feel comfortable in sharing. If you’re not comfortable speaking to your Almoner, remember you can always contact us directly instead.
Advice on the support available from the MCF
Your Almoner will understand the areas of support that the MCF can provide, and have an awareness of other organisations or charities. Your Almoner isn’t there to give you advice directly, but can help you understand the range of support available.
Contacting the MCF
If you would like to contact the MCF, your Almoner can help by contacting the MCF on your behalf. Alternatively, they can provide you with our details so you can get in touch with us directly.
