The Teaching Staff Trust (TST) has evolved over the years since 1797 through a series of trust funds merging into the organisation it is today.
We provide financial support to anyone who has been employed for five years or more in the education of children under 19 in the UK and is facing an unexpected financial problem.
People come to us who work in nurseries, state schools, academy groups, feepaying schools, as well as all the agencies providing supply and temporary placements. We help the teachers and teacher assistants in the classrooms or day care rooms, as well as all those who cook, clean, maintain and supervise within educational walls.
The problems we help people cope with range from bereavement, relationship breakdowns, the onset of ill health, homelessness or a change in their home circumstances, and for the many other reasons that cause a sudden loss of income.
