Who we help

Our grants are NOT loans

Our grants can be used to help with anything from debt relief through to transport problems. If you work in the education sector for the under-19s then you're likely to be eligible for a grant. You don't have to pay us back and it costs you nothing to apply.

"I racked up so much debt looking after myself and my daughter, TST gave me the lift I needed to move closer to my family"

Denise - Retired Teacher

When a Housing Association found me a home near work, TST helped me to pay my first month’s rent and gave me money for carpets and furniture.
