TRUST NEWS - Spring/Summer 2013

 

 

The United Kingdom Falkland Islands Trust was formed in 1981 and aims to assist the Islands' population by providing specialist advice and contacts to assist in the economic and social development of the Islands. Trustees are responsible for the Shackleton Scholarship Fund.

The Trust's primary effort is dedicated towards:

  • Seeking new initiatives which have the potential to result in real, sustainable business opportunities for the people of the Falklands.

  • Carrying out scientific research itself or in collaboration with appropriate partners.

  • Providing and sourcing consultancy advice to the Falkland Islands Government and Falkland Islands Development Corporation in a wide range of areas. To date these have been primarily rural development issues.
