Royal Society for Home Relief to Incurables, Edinburgh

The Society was founded in 1805 and constituted under the Royal Charter of Incorporation in 1903. Scottish Charity Number SC004365.

The Society aims to give assistance to persons (normally under retirement age at the time of application) who are no longer able to work on account of having an incurable illness. An allowance is given quarterly to assist in providing extra help. The Society, however, is not in a position to consider isolated requests to meet single emergencies. Please see application form for medical criteria. 

Funds available

Around £86,000 is available for distribution each year. Last year 157 annuitants received payments of up to £560 over the course of the year.
