Welcome to The Clare Milne Trust
The Clare Milne Trust supports people living with disabilities in Devon and Cornwall.
The Clare Milne Trust is a grant giving charity that aims to provide financial assistance to support people of all ages in overcoming barriers to living a full and active life.
The Trust does this by making grants to registered charities and non profit making organisations which work directly with people who have disabilities and who are based in Devon or Cornwall .
The Trust focuses its grant giving on small effective charities and non profit making organisations that have good volunteer support.
The Trustees strive to offer fair and equitable scrutiny of all applications received.
Clare Milne, the granddaughter of Winnie the Pooh author A.A. Milne, had a disability and had therefore experienced the benefits that are garnered from well run and committed charities.
The Trust was established in 1999 with funds derived from her grandfather, A.A. Milne. Unfortunately Clare died in 2012, but her legacy continues.
In the words of Clare's late mother, Lesley Milne, "My dream is to know that my girl will be remembered for something that brings happiness where it is most needed.”
