Masonic Charitable Foundation – National Conversation Week

Masonic Charitable FoundationLoneliness has become a huge issue in the UK, affecting millions of people from all walks of life. 

Being lonely can have a negative impact not just on our mental health, but our physical health too. It is associated with sleep problems, impaired cognitive health and hypertension.

This National Conversation Week, we are highlighting the support that the Masonic Charitable Foundation can offer to vulnerable members of the Masonic community, as well as the grants we have given to charities that are helping the most socially isolated people in society.

The power of a conversation cannot be underestimated, so let’s get talking!


Supporting the Masonic Community

Masonic Charitable Foundation - Almoner

Almoners play a vital role in supporting vulnerable members of the Masonic community.

The ongoing Almoner’s Tale video series covers topics such as loneliness, bereavement, addiction and respite care.

The videos show how Almoners can provide pastoral care and support, as well as guiding people to the grants and services available from the MCF, the government, and other charities and organisations.

Whether you are an Almoner, or if you know someone who is going through a difficult time, these videos offer a valuable insight into how to offer support.
