Personal welfare services

A charity which provides free support to former coal miners and their families are continuing to provide its personal welfare services to DAMHA residents during the Covid-19 outbreak.

The Coal Industry Social Welfare Organisation (CISWO) is also accepting referrals from individuals themselves, family members and other agencies.

The charity’s free and confidential service includes:

  • Assistance with welfare benefit applications and industry related compensation schemes.
  • Advice on mining related issues including illness and disability.
  • Help to access mobility equipment including walking aids and wheelchairs.
  • Support to reduce loneliness and social isolation.
  • Advocacy to enable you to express your views and concerns, and defend and promote your rights, including access to information and services.
  • Emotional support including loss and bereavement, illness and caring responsibilities.
  • Financial assistance at times of exceptional hardship through CISWO grants or assistance through other agencies and charities.
  • Access to holidays and convalescence.
  • Access to CISWO educational grants for former mineworkers and their dependents.

CISWO’s support is available to former mineworkers, partners, widows and any dependent children or adult dependents with a disability. It has also extended its services to those in its client group most in need, particularly those who are self-isolating and have limited local support and can provide access to essential shopping and prescription collection in some areas.
