The Northwood Charitable Trust’s core purpose is to make communities better and more supportive places for people to live, work and prosper.

 The Trust provides financial support to help enhance people’s lives through a wide range of charitable organisations.  Its main funding themes are:

  • addressing deprivation, poverty and inequality
  • advancing educational attainment
  • progressing physical and mental health and wellbeing
  • supporting community, heritage and cultural enrichment.

The Northwood Charitable Trust was established in 1972 to benefit charitable organisations.  It was originally funded by a member of the Thomson family who donated his shares in the family business; this business now operates as DC Thomson which is a private company and is one of the leading media organisations in the UK.

Subsequent members of the Thomson family have provided continuity and leadership of the Trust and the wider family has continued to donate to the charitable fund.  The current Trustees, who are family members, remain committed to upholding the values of the founder and the objectives of the Trust.
