Snowdon Trust

We are a charity that assists physically and sensory disabled students to access vocational and academic courses in the UK by awarding grants for equipment and essential study needs. We only give awards where funding cannot be met through other channels. Since 1981 we have helped thousands of people retain their hope and dignity, and this year we have supported around 100 disabled students to reach their goals.
