BEN - The Automotive Industry Charity
BEN is the automotive industry charity.
A national charity, BEN provides care and support for anyone who works or has worked in these industries and this provision also extends to dependants. BEN provides friendship, advice, emotional support and financial assistance to more than 15 000 people living in their own homes throughout the UK and Ireland. We also run four nursing and residential centres across the country, providing a home to more than 350 people of different ages and needs.
We are not cause specific, which means that our only guiding principle is to care for our colleagues who have found themselves in need. The range of work our dedicated welfare and care staff undertake is truly diverse from providing round-the-clock care for those with terminal cancer to the emotional and financial support of families where an accident has left the main earner injured or disabled and unable to work.
