The Dempster Trust was set up in 1908 to help the sick and infirm. It continues to deliver on its original principles, giving one-of grants for a range of different reasons to those living in and around Farnham.

The Dempster Trust encourages applications from anyone who feels that they have a special need. All applications must be countersigned by a professional, usually a medical professional or someone with standing within the relevant community.
