This scheme aims to give assistance to union members or their next-of-kin when the sole or main breadwinner dies, becomes permanently incapacitated or suffers from chronic illness of a non-industrial nature. A registered fire or flood victim who is a member is also eligible for the grant.
The FRF is organised and sponsored by NTUC Club in support of the Labour Movements U Care initiative. Held several times a year, these FRF Carnivals enable lower income union members to have the opportunity to bring their family to Downtown East for a day of fun and entertainment at no cost.
As a caring Labour Movement, we aim to help our low-income union members lessen their financial burden. The U Stretch Voucher Programme is one of NTUC-U Care Funds core assistance programmes which provides relief to low-income union members by helping to stretch their dollar on daily necessities.
At the U Care Back to School Fair 2013, there were exclusive discounts of up to 65% and special promotions on school-related merchandise for NTUC members. Plus, FREE educational talks, craft workshops, meet-the-author sessions, instant photo, kids’ activities, goodie bags and more!
