Welcome to the Snowdon Trust Website

We are a charity that assists physically and sensory disabled people to access vocational and academic courses in the UK by awarding grants. These can be for equipment and essential study needs. We only give awards where funding cannot be met through other channels.

Everyone must have the opportunity to achieve their full potential! To apply for funding, click through to our ‘Grants’ section. For ideas on how you can help support Snowdon students, view all the donation options and fundraising activities on our ‘Support Us’ page.

We were previously known as the Snowdon Award Scheme. But in 2012, thanks to our friends at Elmwood, we received a brand ‘makeover’ and we are delighted to be the Snowdon Trust! Moving forward, we aim to help more students – both through our direct financial support and by continuing to raise the “awkward questions” with Government ministers as to why inequalities still exist for disabled people in education.
