A significant proportion of the Sandhurst Trust charitable disbursement is provided for benevolence support. A significant proportion of the Sandhurst Trust is provided for benevolence support.

The Sandhurst Trust provides support to the Officer Cadets under training, the staff and their families at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Initial referrals are forwarded to the charity through the established welfare chain via the College Welfare Warrant Officers, Station Staff Officer, Padres or Chain of Command. Cases are assessed and grants usually provided within 24 hours. The process is discreet, and the Trust does not give out details of the cases.

All Officer Cadets, both British and International, are eligible as well as all Officer and NCO staff serving at the Academy and their immediate family.

We have disbursed over £740,000 since 2015.
