TRANSPORT BENEVOLENT FUND CIO

Helping to make a difference

TBF is all about helping people, people in the public transport industry - helping to improve members’ work-life balance and reduce staff turnover for the employer.

Anyone engaged in the public transport industry in Great Britain is eligible to join TBF.

Membership costs just £1 a week, deductible through the company payroll facility. There are no different levels of membership - the £1 a week is a flat-rate membership fee giving the member and their family access to the extensive range of benefits should need, hardship or distress arise.

£1 a week not only covers the member, but also their partner and dependent children. Offering a wide range of financial, health and welfare benefits to the whole family, including prescription prepayment certificates, complementary and alternative therapies, medical consultations, scans and tests, help towards the cost of laser eyesight correction, convalescence, debt advice, legal help on non-employment matters and also bereavement grants.

TBF has been helping public transport employees for over 90 years and currently has more than 52,000 members, making it the fastest growing charity exclusive to the industry. The Fund’s work is best illustrated by the volume of awards to members that are regularly in excess of £500,000 a quarter.

 

Transport Benevolent Fund CIO, known as TBF, is a registered charity in England and Wales, 1160901, and Scotland, SC047016.
