National Emergencies Trust launched today

The National Emergencies Trust (NET) is a new independent charity that will act as a domestic version of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) by coordinating support for emergencies in England and Wales. The National Emergencies Trust will collaborate with charities and other bodies to raise and distribute money and support victims at times of domestic disaster.

Victims often find it difficult to know who to turn to in the tragic aftermath of a national emergency. The Trust will be there for those people, to facilitate a single point of contact to apply for help with a simple application process. Financial awards can be made to victims quickly and efficiently, avoiding the bureaucracy of multiple applications. It should also help use money more effectively and minimise fraud.
