Headley Trust

The Headley Trust is one of The Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts.

The Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts is the operating office of 17 different independent grantmaking trusts established by members of three generations of the Sainsbury family. It exists to provide economies of scale in the management of the trusts’ activities. It does not make grants; only the individual trusts do so. The trusts’ support for charitable causes over more than 50 years represents one of the leading examples of sustained philanthropy in Britain.
