ORGANISATIONS WE SUPPORT
As a business we encourage our people to become involved in charitable projects alongside our commitments to a number of organisations.
The Treloar Trust provides education, care, therapy, medical support and independence training to young people with physical disabilities from all over the UK and overseas. The aim is to prepare young people for adult life, giving them the confidence and skills to achieve their full potential. The main areas of work are the non-maintained nursery and school (from 2 to 19 years) and college (from 16 to 25 years). In school, young people are challenged and their abilities nurtured to prepare them for the next stage in their lives, the aim being that every student leaves having achieved at least one nationally recognised qualification. In college, the aim is to enable all learners to achieve their long-term goals of a more independent life and make a meaningful contribution to their community, including higher education and employment.

Over 100 years ago, LWC’s founder, Lord Wandsworth (Sydney Stern), recognised a need to provide a vibrant, supportive boarding school environment for children from difficult backgrounds to enable them to thrive. Today, LWC continues to keep this vision at the heart of what they do.
The LWC Foundation supports around 50 children who face tough challenges at home having lost the support of one or both parents through death, divorce, illness or separation to benefit from the support, structure and stability of LWC’s vibrant boarding school environment.
These children could be living with elderly relatives; in cramped conditions; or with a grieving or ill parent struggling with daily routines and balancing work with their child’s education. Some are victims or witnesses of domestic violence whilst others are on the cusp of going into care.
Foundationers can attend school without the pressures and distractions of home, have a chance to enjoy their childhood and with the transformation support of the LWC Community they can flourish and reach their potential. It costs approximately £1.2m to fund the Foundation each year.
