If you work in the leather industry, have been incapacitated, either through injury or ill-health, and have found yourself in financial difficulties, the Leather and Hide Trade Benevolent Institute (LHTBI) may be able to help.

LHTBI was founded to help current and former employees of the leather industry, and their dependants, who are in financial need. LHTBI can provide grants and awards to support suitable applicants with meeting essential costs, such as housing, mobility aids and other needs. Applicants must meet certain criteria to qualify for assistance and any award is made at the discretion of the trust.
