Kilmarnock Trust

Everybody deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Since our humble beginnings in 1958, we have upheld the values of founder Miss Christabel Robinson. She understood that everyone is uniquely valuable and deserving of compassion, support, empowerment, and respect. She believed in the transformative power of education, employment, and leading a purposeful life.

The Kilmarnock Trust owns, governs, and supports the operational arms of Kilmarnock. Ensuring that they are constantly expanding, diversifying, and seeking innovative new ways to improve the confidence, wellbeing, and proficiency of people with disabilities.
