NACO maintains a benevolent fund for members in financial hardship.
The NACO Executive act as trustees of the benevolent fund - as such, applications to the fund are given consideration at the next available Executive meeting (for dates please see the Events page)
The Executive will determine the grant to be paid and reserve the right to refuse any application or request additional and/or supporting information for any application received.
Although the Benevolent Fund is open to NACO members, due consideration will be given to those no longer in membership due to retirement, ill health, redundancy etc. Consideration will also be given to immediate family and/or dependents of members and ex-members.
