Actively supporting the teaching profession
The Society was established in 1798 and is the oldest charity of its kind in the country. We provide assistance to teachers and their families who are encountering financial difficulties, often unexpectedly. Although pension provision and superannuation schemes have reduced the numbers needing help there remains a significant task for the Society.
How we help
We give grants to our beneficiaries when they are in need and we carry out a financial assessment to ensure that we give our funds to those most in need.
We offer financial assistance to meet personal needs and to improve the quality of life. For example household and personal items, nursing home fees, cash gifts and medical treatment.
The Society's Committee meets regularly for the consideration of applications.
How you can help
The Society continues to need support. Please consider leaving SOSS a legacy in your will. Or perhaps subscribe or make a donation (by gift or covenant), however small, using the Gift Aid Scheme.
