Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust

Making a lasting difference to the people of Kent...

The charitable trust was
created in 1969 by 
Sir James Colyer-Fergusson

Over forty five years have passed since his generous and philanthropic act and during this time the trustees have made grants to preserve Kent churches, promote musical excellence and support the local communities of Kent.

Disadvantaged and vulnerable young people in Kent face enormous challenges.  The recession has impacted on every community across the county, but none more so than Kent’s young people who have suffered disproportionately from a lack of employment opportunities.
