Ben advises on big issues
Ben has released its annual Impact Report which reveals financial health is the main reason why people contacted Ben for help (49%) in 2016/17.
Ben, the not-for-profit organisation that partners with the automotive industry to provide support for life to its people, revealed that low income was reported as the biggest financial challenge for those working in the automotive industry.
During April 2016 to March 2017, Ben has helped over 3,000 people working in the automotive industry with their financial, social, physical and mental health, which is 14% more than the previous year.
On a positive note, Ben reported 6.5% repeat cases (people requesting help with the same issue more than once) in 2016-17, compared to 32% repeat cases in 2015-16. Fundraising income increased by 10% on the previous year.
