Need to Talk?
Here at the Sacred Heart Part Pupils Benevolent Fund we understand that while often people come to us for financial assistance, there are many others who need alternative forms of support for their personal wellbeing, and it can be hard to know where to start or how to find a trusted advisor.
To support you in supporting your own self-care, we have partnered with Health Assured to offer you free access to a 24/7 helpline to support you through any of life’s issues or problems.
