We all hope that we will not have to face financial hardship or major health problems; need help supporting our children or require extra care in our old age. In reality thousands of people every year need a little extra assistance. We, as Freemasons, are fortunate to have that support at hand.
“Freemasonry Cares” is there to make sure Masons and their dependants, in need of support, get it.
Freemasonry Cares is a joint initiative involving the four central Masonic Charities and West Lancashire Freemasons’ Charity and is a gateway to the help they can provide. It aims to increase awareness of that help and to make it easier to access via Freephone 0800 0356090
Rather than expect a potential applicant to remember and understand that there are five Masonic Charities offering many different types of help, the Freephone number will give you direct access.
This joint initiative acts as a passport to the assistance which is available, by increasing awareness, it makes it easier to access via a Freephone number 0800 0356090.
Your details will be recorded and if you meet the criteria, your enquiry will be given to the Provincial Grand Almoner within 24 hours of the call, who will arrange for an Admin Care Officer to visit you and complete the application form if applicable.
Criteria to be met:
- You must have a Masonic connection
- You must have a need within the charities guidelines
- You must meet the financial criteria of the charity
- You must agree to your details being processed on the charities computer
This initiative provides a unique opportunity to make sure those who, in the past, may not have been well versed in the existence or operation of our Masonic Charities (especially wives, partners and widows of Masons) are now brought up to date with the help available to them.Click on the

The Masonic Charitable Foundation will take over the work of the four central Masonic Charities, in April 2106 and will provide the same range of grants to Freemasons and their families who have a financial, health and care or family need.
“We want to make a difference to the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves and assist those in need”
