Helping families with University Bursaries

Welcome to the POOBI website.

POOBI is The Post Office Orphans Benevolent Institution

We help Royal Mail Group plc & Post Office Ltd families with children (see " How we can help")

POOBI was established in 1870 by staff from the then General Post Office (a forerunner of Royal Mail Group & Post Office Ltd) to help the families of their colleagues who faced hardship as a result of death or chronic illness or disability.

We are run by a committee of management with Trustees who include Royal Mail employees, and retired Royal Mail staff.

POOBI is managed by a Secretary to the Trustees. The office is usually open one day a week, but there is a voicemail facility, more information on how to contact us can be found on the contact us page.
