The #iwill gang at TWOA sat down with pupils from OEA to talk about their #iwillfund 'Difference is Normal' campaign, that focuses on what it's like living with a disability. Well done all! pic.twitter.com/vdOz50fw1x

About us

Background

Fiona Ormiston Murray was a young woman with her whole life ahead of her. She and her husband were tragically killed in a car crash on their honeymoon in 1969. The Murray family set up a trust in her name and now Ormiston’s programmes support thousands of children, young people and their families all over the UK. 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. It operates on low overheads and is run by a team of four part time members of staff based in London. Its board of five trustees meet quarterly, chaired by the founder, Peter Murray.

Mission

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.

Values

Ormiston Trust is committed to:

  • Nurture: Developing caring, supportive and respectful relationships that foster well-being
  • Empowerment: Supporting people to become more confident, self-reliant and engaged in decision-making
  • Excellence: Striving for the continuous improvement of services in the organisations it supports
  • Innovation: Funding and developing new and challenging approaches to service delivery. In doing this,
    the Trust is not afraid to take considered risks
  • Financial prudence: Making best use of resources
  • Listening: Listening and responding to the views of its stakeholders
