Our Impact

With a history stretching back almost 200 years, we are one of the oldest benevolent charities in the UK. Our challenge, as ever, is to learn from our past, remain relevant for today, and have an eye on the future.

We are on a mission to be the leading charity for the printing, paper, publishing and packaging sector; here to help today, true to our heritage, and investing in future talent.

In 2019, we asked all our beneficiaries who receive Regular Financial Assistance to tell us about the support we give and what it meant to them.
