Welcome to Ashley, Churchill & Thorner
Educational Trust

The Ashley, Churchill & Thorner Educational Trust is a charity which was set up to assist young people around Dorchester and Crossways in Dorset with educational costs (such as books, equipment such as tools, and exam fees) helping people to prepare for trade or a profession.

The Trust provides grants of up to £500 a year to those under the age of 25 whose household income is below £30K a year.

The Trustees usually meet three times a year to discuss applications – in mid September, January and May – and application forms should be received at least three weeks before a meeting to be considered.
