Charity & Almoners

As part of a member support team, Provincial & Lodge Charity Stewards and Almoners have a vital role to play in supporting the welfare of Freemasons, their family members and the wider community.


CHARITY STEWARDS

Being a Charity Steward requires enthusiasm, flair, tact and sensitivity, and the ability to build relationships with members and, on social occasions, their families and guests.

UGLE assisted by The Masonic Charitable Foundation and guided by a group of masonic fundraisers, has written a guide to assist and support Provincial & Lodge Charity Stewards in carrying out their duties. The guide is adaptable to suit individual and local circumstances and will be continuously reviewed and updated to meet future needs.

You can view and download the guide here.


ALMONERS

UGLE assisted by The Masonic Charitable Foundation and guided by a group of Provincial Grand Almoners has produced the Almoner’s Guide to assist Provincial & Lodge Almoners in fulfilling their role.

This guide will be of particular use to those newly appointed, whilst also serving as a continuous reference document for those who are more experienced in providing the excellent pastoral care and support needed within their local community.

You can view and download the guide here.

A series of supplementary technical fact sheets have been created by the MCF for Lodge Almoners on a number of topics ranging from bereavement to mental health. Copies of the popular ‘Almoner’s Briefing’ are also available. Please visit the MCF's website where you can view and download these resources and more.
