Apply for assistance from The Edridge Fund
Many Probation and Cafcass staff spend their working lives dealing with other people's problems but do not always know where to turn when things get difficult for themselves.
The Edridge Fund is here to provide money, support and help if you need it. This could mean cash to cope with an immediate crisis, and for support and advice from one of our Representatives.
The Edridge Fund may be able to help you. Application is swift and confidential, and involves completion of just one form. To apply simply print out the application form, fill it in and either post it to us or send the completed file in an email.
We are allowed to help if your job makes you eligible to join the National Association of Probation Officers (Napo), even if you are not a member. We can also help if you are retired and Edridge can help families and dependents if the eligible person dies.
Eligible parties include:
Edridge operates only on the basis of demonstrated need. Applications are assessed individually and grants are designed to help towards the applicant's specific requirements.
