Our History

The Trusthouse Charitable Foundation was formed in 1997 following the merger between Trust House Forte plc and Granada plc. Following the sale of shares in Granada, the new ‘Trusthouse’ (rather than Trust House) became a registered charity in 1997, with investments totalling circa £50 million. The return from these investments provides the annual grants budget of some £2.5 million which is awarded to charitable organisations and projects.
