Holywell Trust was formed in the late summer of 1988. Its formation came from the perceived need for an organisation which would encourage risk taking and stimulate creativity in the work of Community Development and Peace Building in the North West.
Holywell’s main areas of concern have been in encouraging healthy working relationships, both personal and cross–community, in facilitating community development & peace building work, in developing public campaigns, in commenting on and researching environmental issues in promoting community arts projects, supporting cross–border, adult education, Heritage research & awareness, organising and facilitating experiental group work and delivering community development support to projects in the North West.
Holywell Trust in its 21st year of operations gained Charitable Status in April 2008. Registered Charity No: XT8573.
