Margaret Turpin Trust

Margaret Turpin Training Trust (MTTT).

Margaret Turpin established this trust in 1999, originally to further the training and education of staff of the Connect Therapeutic Community. In 2004 the Trust documentation was changed and any grants made from the Trust are now for the training and education of students in contractual training who wish to continue their studies to CTA.

Applicants for a grant of up to £250 may be from any area of TA training only, but they must be contractual trainee members of UKATA intending to study to CTA level, and the grant cannot be made to pay for main training costs.

As funds are limited applications will be assessed by the trustees, Julia Molony and Carole Stilwell, and will be decided on merit.
