When Fiona Ormiston Murray and her husband tragically died on their honeymoon in 1968, her family were devastated. Fiona had loved children and it was no secret that she was excited about starting her own family. In response the family sought to create a lasting memorial. Her father George and brother Peter, therefore started a charitable trust devoted to enabling children and families to fulfil their potential.’
Ormiston Trust is a grant-making trust that is not open to applications. It works strategically in its areas of interest which are principally with schools and organisations supporting children, young people and families.
“We envision a future where all children and young people can lead fulfilling lives.”
Our mission is to invest in the delivery of high quality programmes through children’s services and academies that will improve the life skills of the young people and families they support.
To achieve this mission, we work in close partnership with Ormiston Families and Ormiston Academies Trust who are able to deliver effective programmes to the young people and families.
“We improve the life chances of children and young people by partnering with and investing in schools, charities and organisations who share our goals”
