Charitable Trust

The St Vincent Charitable Trust was established in 1996 to raise funds to supplement the finances of St Vincent School for the Deaf.

The need of the deaf is education, appropriate to their disability, in preparing them for life in a hearing world. The main goal of the Trust is to ensure that the school can meet these needs and ensure the sustainability of the school.

The Trust funds are used exclusively for education purposes and, in particular, for maintaining a dedicated, well-qualified and specialised staff.  It supplements salaries and funds specialised posts.

Programmes and projects funded include upgrading the computer centre and the audiology department.The Trustees have been associated with St Vincent School for the Deaf in various capacities over many years:
