Providing support for charitable causes

The Morris Charitable Trust was established in 1989 to provide support for charitable causes.

It was founded by the Morris Family whose businesses, Business Design Centre Group Ltd and Business Design Centre Ltd, are based in Islington.

The companies variously contribute a proportion of their annual profits to facilitate the Trust’s charitable activities or the voluntary support of their staff, through their time and expertise, towards local charitable causes. The Trust is run by a Board of Trustees who provide their services on a voluntary basis. The Morris Charitable Trust is also a founding member of the “Islington Giving” campaign.


Our grants enable the advancement of education in schools and other community learning settings.


We fund projects supporting those in need of services or resources they may otherwise not receive.


The trust aims to help causes that enhance the enjoyment of the lives of those who are sick or elderly.


We improve the financial circumstances of worthwhile causes for the benefit of community groups.
