The Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution (RMBI) has offered a message of solidarity to residents of its care homes.
News of the financial collapse of care-home provider Southern Cross, and of abuse at Winterbourne View, has shocked and concerned many. The RMBI can offer reassurance that it is financially sound, owns the freehold of all of its care homes, and upholds the highest moral standards. It has an established Abuse and Safeguarding policy, encourages whistle-blowers, and maintains zero tolerance of any type of abuse.
The charity is encouraging Freemasons across the UK to get in touch if they would like help or advice during the current crisis in the care sector.
