Canon Collins Trust

Canon Collins Trust, Northampton Street, London, United Kingdom

established Established :


Canon Collins Trust was founded in 1981 by the British Defence and Aid Fund for Southern Africa. Named in honour of its founder, Canon John Collins of St Paul’s Cathedral, our vision was to equip South African and Namibian exiles with the skills and education denied to them by apartheid. Priority was given to refugees active in the political struggle for freedom, with a view to their returning home to rebuild their communities after apartheid was overthrown.
