Registered Charity No. 1088521
Join the Team
Stratford Town Trust plays a key role in the community life of Stratford-upon-Avon. Dating back to the 13th Century, the role of the Trust is twofold: As custodian of the ancient Guild and College Estates it looks after some of the most important and quirky buildings and spaces within the town including a bandstand, the Medieval Guild Chapel, the beautiful Rowley Fields and even a couple of pubs. As a grant maker we proudly support over one hundred groups, charities, and members of the community each year and with over £30 million in funding allocated since 2001, we know that sometimes the smallest grant can make the biggest difference. We are a small team, led by a new Chief Executive and Chair of Trustees, committed to improving the quality of life of the people of our town. Stratford Town Trust is changing the way it thinks, how it connects with the community and how it might make the biggest impact from its valuable assets. We are looking for two people to help us deliver that change. If you are creative and passionate about helping the community, we would love to talk to you.
