The Family Crisis Fund

The Rotary Club of Bury has been awarded Community Funding from Bury Council 'The Pitch'. The awards are to help The Club to continue providing aid to individuals and families living through critical life situations.

The Family Crisis Fund, operated by Bury Rotary Club, was established in December 2015 following a request from a social worker through our website to provide a bed for a 6 year old child. Now working alongside the welfare services, we provide support for local families in temporary difficulty by providing essential household furniture and appliances free of charge to families living through difficult and stressful situations.

With The Family Crisis Fund, The Club tries to deliver the essential items to make life just a bit more tolerable during times of crisis. Children and young people in these situations are particularly susceptible to depression or anger issues, occasionally developing disruptive or anti-social behaviour. Sometimes just a little help is all families need to keep them together and out of the criminal justice system, or the long term health and welfare systems.

In the last 18 months, Bury Rotary Club has provided major household items to more than 35 families throughout the Borough of Bury. We would all like to think that in the case of misfortune, sickness or bereavement, somebody would be there to offer help through desperate times. The Family Crisis Fund will continue to help families in Bury through the worst times of their lives.
