Teaching Staff Trust provides financial support to people working (or who have retired from working) in education of under-19s for five years or more. We aim to make a real difference when the unexpected happens by reducing the financial impact of bereavement, serious ill health or injury, relationship breakdown, loss of home or loss of income.
How we work
We’re based in a small office in North West Kent where just two of us manage the charity. Our board of trustees oversees Teaching Staff Trust and sets the policies for the support that we work to. We keep our overheads low so that we can provide as much financial support as possible
"When I was ill, I had to give up my position as a teaching assistant. TST supported me so I could get back on track"
"I spent so much looking after myself and my daughter I ran out of money for the essentials. TST gave me the chance to move closer to family"
"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."
