Williamson Children’s Trust

Supporting young people on their journey.

The Williamson Children's Trust

Family Care was set up by Ged Williamson in 1988 to support some of the most vulnerable children and young people in the UK.

Being labelled as a child in care is hard.  Statistics show that for most children with care experience, future life prospects are not as promising as they are for children without care experience.

To help young people moving onto the next stage of their lives, the Williamson Children’s Trust was set up in 2015.  The trust is a fund available to any child or young person who has been supported by Family Care for one day or more.
