Help for members
when they need it
UNISON City of Edinburgh Branch is one of the
very few branches that has its own Welfare Fund
(a registered charity) which supplements UNISON
UK Welfare ‘There For You’ when
helping members who have a particular need.
This can be in the form of advocacy but financial
help can also be available. The fund is financed
by voluntary contributions by members of UNISON
City of Edinburgh Branch. You can contribute
via a form from the branch office. You can pay
in the same way as your union subs are deducted
by your employer. For more details, and if you
wish to contact our Welfare officers for advice
or assistance, call 0131 558 7488
