Trusts and foundations

Support from trusts and foundations have given us the vision, ambition and resources to develop new ideas as well as to fund proven, effective solutions.

“My belief has always been to supplement the efforts of others. The British Asian Trust is a perfect example of how to achieve the balance between NGOs and Donor Trusts – those who do the work and those who help by funding the work.”
