The Noel Buxton Trust
The Noel Buxton Trust was established by Noel Edward Buxton (later the first Lord Noel Buxton) in 1919 to achieve social and economic progress in Britain and throughout the world. In setting up the Trust he was inspired by the example of his great grandfather Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton who played an important role in the Emancipation of Slaves and other social improvements.
The Trust has supported organisations promoting social change and improvement. Recent grants have funded the Family Rights Group, the Community Chaplaincy Association's work with ex-prisoners, and Excellent, which works with subsistence communities in Africa to support sustainable development.See more
