Our fundamental service is the practical, emotional and financial support provided to member families following a member’s death, or other significant crisis event such as a serious illness or accident.
When a significant event such as a death occurs, Miners’ Promise is immediately on hand to assist families, usually within 72 hours of initial notification. We then meet with the family, usually face-to-face, to determine the type of support needed.
When a face-to-face meeting is initiated by a family, a full assessment is undertaken, allowing them to be intimately involved in determining their priorities and immediate needs.
Typically, support can include acting as a liaison between for example, an employer, probate lawyer and government agencies, or it may involve providing immediate financial assistance to pay bills or assist with funeral costs*.
Ensure your partner or family will be cared for if anything happens to you
Of course we hope it never does, but fatalities and serious accidents come with no warning and can occur at home or at work. Either way, Miners’ Promise will be there to help.
Miners’ Promise helps you take care of your mates
Your membership contributions also make it possible to assist the many other families each year who unexpectedly find themselves needing our help. Being part of Miners’ Promise not only ensures your family can access our services, but it also looks after your work mates.
