Set up in 2009, we have undergone massive transformation, priding ourselves on being one of the country’s most efficient charities.

 Our streamlined application process means that once fully completed applications are received, they are individually reviewed within a 14 day period by our specialist board and Trustees, allowing us to reach out to those children most in need of our help and support. Every family receives a personalised response from the Trust following the outcome of its review.

 One thing for certain the Boparan Charitable Trust, might be a relatively young charity but with its efficiencies and big heart, we hope to make a difference to children’s lives in the UK.

I set up the charity several years ago with the aim of helping as many children and young people as possible. We have come a long way and I am proud of the work we have achieved. On behalf of the families we’ve helped, thank you. Your support, commitment and compassion for our charity are very much appreciated.
