The National Caravan Council Benevolent Fund

The National Caravan Council Benevolent Fund provides one-off grants to support people working, past or present, in the caravan vehicle industry, who are in need of financial support.

The charity helps people working across all areas, including manufacturing, distribution and holiday/residential parks.

The charity funds items such as:

  • Essential household items such as washing machines, fridges or cookers 
  • Funeral expenses
  • Essential travel costs
  • Priority bills
  • Home adaptations
