I have just had lunch in the office with Stephen Gilbert, Chief Executive of the Printing Charity. Based in Crawley, this charity handles the administration of the Stationers' Foundation and a very efficient job they do of it too. I am hoping that the Company can increase its links with them: they have a huge endowment and struggle to find enough people to support. At present their charter prevents them from supporting education and training, except for the children of printers, but they are seeking to change this. However they welcome approaches from people within the industry who are in genuine need and are very keen that Stationers use this resource. I plan to put more information onto the Education and Charity pages of our website but, in the meantime, you may care to learn more about them by clicking this link.
