Approximately half of the John Laing Charitable Trust's budget is spent, each year, on retired employees who are in need.
In addition, the John Laing Charitable Trust will support existing staff or their immediate families if they have a serious problem, such as needing to adapt their house through a disability, if no other alternative sources are available.
Former employees are visited by one of a small team of eight welfare officers who identify and confirm instances of need. Support is also given to retirement clubs and a quarterly newsletter is produced and available to all retirees.
John Laing employees are able to keep in touch with former colleagues through the Laing Past and Present Website
The Retired Employees Newsletter contains both current information and also archive material, which may be of interest to those researching the history of John Laing.
