Charity information

The Travellers Aid Trust

The Trust objectives are:
• The relief of poverty, hardship, sickness and distress among such persons as adopt, whether temporarily or permanently and regardless of race, culture, nationality or ethnic origins, a nomadic style or habit of life (herein after referred to as ‘Travellers’).
• The advancement of education among the children of Travellers by attendance at school or otherwise.
The Trustees fulfil the objectives of the Trust in three ways. Firstly, by developing and delivering a range of small or targeted grants programmes aimed at benefiting individuals Travellers and the Traveller community. Secondly, by providing core funding for Friends, Families and Travellers, a national voluntary organisation whose service delivery reflects the Trust’s own objectives. Thirdly, and only in exceptional circumstances, by securing funding and administering projects that are seen to be of benefit to the Traveller community as a whole.
