Who we help

If you work or have retired from working in a school, a nursery or any other education role for under-19s then TST is here for you. Our role is to make grants that help people to stay independent and out of financial hardship. Among the people that have benefited from our grants are nursery workers, teaching assistants and learning support staff, teachers, lunchtime supervisors and school administrators.
