Care Trust

The Warwickshire & West Mercia Care Trust is a charitable organisation that supports the work of probation.  It offers financial support to individual offenders who are currently, or have very recently been supervised by probation.

The Trust will consider a wide variety of requests.  It would generally make one-off awards that cannot be met through the benefit system.  This might be for tools and equipment for employment, finance for training opportunities or assistance with sporting or other leisure activities that are part of moving to a healthier lifestyle.

How to apply

If you have a request, speak to your Offender Manager about it.  They will have to write a short paragraph outlining your request and apply to the Care Trust on your behalf.
