Annual review highlights RMTGB scope

Providing practical educational support for young people facing family trauma or bereavement

For the first time in recent years, the RMTGB is providing help to more than two thousand children and young people of masonic families. According to the trust’s annual review, tragic events such as the death of a parent, family breakdown or redundancy can have lifelong consequences on the education and well-being of children and young people.

The review explains how the RMTGB’s financial grants and practical welfare support are improving the lives of young people in the aftermath of these events by providing them with the opportunity to complete the education and training they need to succeed in life.

Marcus and Isabella (pictured) received financial grants when their father died at the tragically young age of thirty-seven. The RMTGB also helped to meet the cost of school trips and extra-curricular activities, and provided a computer to help with their homework. The non-masonic support of the RMTGB, which includes Stepping Stones and Lifelites, has improved the lives of a further ten thousand children and young people and is also outlined in the review.

Last year, more than £10 million was spent in order to provide this support, and the RMTGB relies on donations from Freemasons and their families to continue its life-changing work.
