The Worshipful Company of Firefighters Charitable Trust

Closely associated with, but operating as a separate entity from the Worshipful Company of Firefighters, the Charitable Trust is a registered charity (number 1000562) with eight Trustees who are responsible for all aspects of its operation and are all members of the Worshipful Company.
