In 1946, Francis Scott, a successful businessman, founded the Brathay Hall Trust;
...for the education... of young persons of both sexes from industry... for research into questions affecting the education of such persons... for the instruction of staff... and for any other (related) charitable purposes...
Brathay Trust now works in many fields, extending Scott’s original vision to meet the needs of today. We are driven by the same holistic approach: to improve the life chances of children, young people and families by inspiring them to engage positively in their communities.
In the 1970s work was developed with the Trident Trust, to give young school leavers a residential experience with outdoor activities, as part of a programme introducing them to the world of work.Find out more
Brathay has moved on substantially since its early days, and yet we have retained the central ethos of our work – to develop people to enable them to realise their potential throughout their lives.Find out more
