How can I help?


With your support the Trust has really made a difference. With your support in the future we will be able to continue to fill the gaps in nutrition standards and promote debate in this area. Whether you make a donation, standing order or a legacy, you can help us to foster change in the right places so that the nation’s help can be improved by means of good food.

If you have not already done so, please consider making the Trust a donation. If everyone just contributed £2 per month as a regular standing order we would raise enough to fund one project a year and allow us to take on a more campaigning role into the 21st century.

If you use CWT resources regularly for free we would urge you to do so.

Please make your gift go further if you are a UK taxpayer by ticking the box on the donations leaflet which allows us to reclaim gift aid.
