Could you help shape the future of the Physiotherapy Benevolent Fund?

The Physiotherapy Benevolent Fund (formerly the Members Benevolent Fund) was established in 1917 to assist CSP members experiencing financial difficulties.

We are a registered charity which supports past and present members of the CSP who are experiencing financial difficulty or hardship.

Our History   Join Us

The PBF aims to ensure that all members of the profession are aware of where they can go for help should they, or a colleague, experience difficulties, and to provide high quality support for those who seek assistance.

Gifts, Grants and Support

Assistance may be either one, or a combination, of the following:

  • A financial monthly allowance
  • A 'one off' Grant
  • Contribute to purchase of personal assistive equipment - e.g. specialised wheelchair
  • CSP Subscriptions
  • Interest Free Loan for a specific purpose
  • Advice on benefits and financial planning
  • Support for applications and tribunals
  • Specific debt advice
