About Us


 

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 personalized 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.

Trustees

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.

As a trustee, I have always wanted to do more than just sit behind a desk. I am passionate about the work of the Trust and take pride in being part of the weekly application review panel. In addition to playing my part towards fundraising for the Trust, completing the Birmingham Half Marathon in 2013 and more recently the Birmingham 10km in 2016 and our very first firewalk.

I am both delighted and privileged to be able to accept an invitation to become a Trustee of the Boparan Charitable Trust. There are a considerable number of children and families who have benefited from their prompt response at times of need and crisis and I look forward very much to working with them to promote and expand their scope of work."
