Welcome to the Lauriston Trust, an Educational Charitable Trust set up in 1989 after the sale of Lauriston School. Our aim is to promote the arts in all its forms primarily to young people in Trafford and Greater Manchester.

At present the Trust has a Bursary at the Royal Northern College of Music and supports the National Youth Orchestra, the Halle, and the Trafford Youth Orchestras, as well as giving grants to other organisations and individuals. Our efforts are concentrated on the North West and Trafford in particular.

Any application for help is considered by the Trust at its quarterly meetings and should initially be sent using this form.

Chairman of the Trustees
