BEN is the UK’s dedicated charity for those who work or have worked in the automotive and related industries. As well as providing practical, emotional and financial support to thousands of people every year, BEN also has four not for profit care centres around the country, offering a range of services from residential to full nursing care. In addition, it runs a day care centre, based in Coventry, where those within the industry can leave an elderly relative to be cared for while they work.
You can become a supporter of BEN by raising awareness at work with your colleagues, or mentioning it to someone who may need some support whether with welfare issues or practical help. Simply putting a poster up on your staff noticeboard to raise awareness is a good way to help.
If you are an employer you may wish to let your employees know of the very many benefits of being part of BEN.
BEN is represented at a number of industry lead events- but it’s not all work! Supporters of BEN can also take part in fun events too to raise funds – Karting, walking, or even climbing Kilimanjaro. Alternatively you may wish to put on your own event and BEN is always there to discuss ideas with you.
