The Bryson Fund is an emergency provision from Bryson Charitable Group which aims to provide food, finance, and emotional support.
Our goal is to initially assist up to 3,000 people in three ways:
1) The provision and delivery of food and essential items.
2) Financial support to ensure families are equipped with key household items, including oil, gas, electricity, and white goods.
3) Emotional support to help reduce social isolation and any heightened stress brought on by the COVID-19 lockdown. This will be delivered via telephone calls, online support, and face-to-face meetings wherever possible, and while still adhering to government guidelines around social distancing.
Bryson's emergency support is being delivered by 25 staff alongside an increasing number of volunteers. We are offering help to existing clients, as well as those being identified by our teams on the ground. Bryson Charitable Group has over 1,000 staff members working in areas deemed critical by the government during the current crisis.
Since 1st April, Bryson has delivered £250,000 of support to help those most severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
4,876 people (2,548 adults; 2,328 children and young people) have now received emergency support in the form of home heating and electricity, along with food, essential items, white goods, and emotional support.
We have worked closely with community groups throughout the pandemic to identify those in greatest need across Northern Ireland. Please see the below infographic for a detailed overview.
