The National Emergencies Trust will collaborate with charities and other bodies to raise and distribute money and support victims at the time of a domestic disaster.
Victims often find it difficult to know who to turn to in the tragic aftermath of a national emergency. The Trust will be there for those victims to facilitate a single point of contact to apply for help with a simple application process. Financial awards can be made to victims quickly and efficiently, avoiding the bureaucracy of multiple applications. It should also help use money more effectively and minimise fraud.
Making a Donation
The Government is doing everything it can to alleviate some of this pressure. However, at times like this, it’s the strength and desire to help from the public that can make the most difference. That’s why we, the NET, are launching an appeal to raise funds for local charities and grassroots organisations that can provide vital support to people in the quickest way possible.
