Queen's Regimental Association Benevolence

Benevolent Fund

With effect from 2008, The Queen’s Regimental Benevolent Fund was passed over to The Benevolent Fund of The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment for investment and the day to day management of benevolent cases. The funds are “ring fenced” to provide for the administration of The Association and financial assistance to former members of The Queen’s Regiment and their dependants suffering hardship.

(PRINCESS OF WALES'S ROYAL REGIMENT (QUEEN'S AND ROYAL HAMPSHIRES) BENEVOLENT FUND Charity number: 1024418)

 

Grants

Grants in response to Benevolent Casework may be made to members of The Association or their dependants. In deciding whether or not a grant is justified, the sole criterion must be clear evidence of real hardship as provided by SSAFA or similar National body. Grants are made in accordance with procedures laid down by the Trustees of The PWRR Benevolent Fund (of whom the President of The Queen’s Regimental Association is one)

Finance

In view of increasing demand on funds, all bids for administrative grants from the former Queen’s Regiment Benevolent Fund are carefully scrutinised and can only be authorised by the President of The Association in order to safeguard resources for benevolent use

The Benevolence Secretary at Area Headquarters PWRR is the gateway to Benevolence for all Regimental veterans.
