What we do

The making of grants to charities who support children and young people with severe learning disabilities. The trustees make grants for items of equipment and activities which directly benefit the children and young people (not running costs). In exceptional circumstances grants may be awarded to individual beneficiaries.

Twice-yearly meetings are held, usually in June and December for the trustees to consider grant applications. Grants are usually between £750 and £3,000



Our Story

Dorothy Pamela Smith, known as Pamela, was born brain-impaired and had the mental age of a child throughout her life, and required full-time care.

Pamela became a ward of court because of her mental incapacity. After Pamela's death, the residual from her estate was incorporated into the charitable trust for making grants to charities and medical research concerned with brain impairment in children.
