Financial assistance


Are you a member experiencing financial difficulties, unison can offer you support.

You may have problems due to:

  • relationship breakdown;
  • loss of income;
  • suffering from a long illness;
  • needing to buy equipment because of a disability;
  • caring for someone with special needs or an illness.

There is no guarantee that unison can offer you financial help, but thousands of members and their families do benefit from support every year. For example, in 2012, Unison gave more than 4,000 grants to members totalling nearly £750,000.

Speak the university unison welfare officer for more information.
