Since 1992 VCT has supported 439 children at school and 237 young people in their further education. It has provided a pension for 282 Older People and given short and long-term support for people with a range of medical issues which have impacted on their ability to be fully self- supporting.
Their main focus is education and VCT works with families as a whole to keep children in education for as long as possible; each additional year increasing their chances of escaping poverty permanently.
Anglo-Indian Concern raises funds in the U.K. through sponsorships, regular giving, one-off donations and legacies. Rachel Thurley, who co-founded Anglo-Indian Concern with her late husband Tom in 1992, organises day-to-day operations, supported by a group of volunteers.
Funds are transferred to India and administered there by the Vine Charitable Trust (VCT). VCT has two employees: Grace (Office Manager) and John (Social Worker).
