The Extraspecial Trust

The ExtraSpecial Trust is there to help, with small personal grants, particularly when there is no one else to do so.

Founded 1977

  • Mission statement

    A learning disability is the most common disability in
    Britain, affecting more than a million people. It is not
    a learning difficulty, such as dyslexia; it is a permanent
    intellectual impairment. However, people with learning disabilities can, with the right support, achieve all kinds of things and develop many interests and pleasures, often independently in the community.

    Unfortunately, all too many people with learning disabilities have very low incomes, which contributes to a sense of social exclusion. The social life, the interests and the travel that most people take for granted can be very difficult for someone who has very little spare money and who may need special support.

    The ExtraSpecial Trust is there to help, with small personal grants, particularly when there is no one else to do so.
