Delamere Charitable Trust continues to provide vital support services for Jewish children with Special Educational Needs, albeit in different ways, following the closure of its school in July 2011.

In conjunction with other community organisations, we set up JSENSE, a major new specialist SEN Support Service Provider in Manchester for Jewish children with learning disablities.

We are also using the income stream from our modest capital reserves to support Club Tikva and other vital services for Jewish children with Special Educational Needs in Manchester and North West England.  Thanks to the generosity of a major benefactor, the late Gershon Rothman, in 2017/18 we were able to help a further seven service providers with innovative projects which they could not otherwise have afforded.

Despite this and other helpful legacies, with current record low interest rates the charity’s income will not be able to maintain this increased level of support in the medium term without a substantial increase in our fundraising capacity from recent levels, grateful as we have been to our continuing loyal donors.  We are making plans accordingly.

This website will be developed continuously as our new services for Jewish children with special educational needs evolve.  Any enquiries should be sent via our contact form.
