What is the William Wates Memorial Trust and what do they do?
The William Wates Memorial Trust is a registered charity set up in 1998. The Trust exists to celebrate the life of William Wates (1977- 1996) by supporting projects that help dis-advantaged young people fulfil their potential and stay away from a life of crime.

William was a much-loved young man and is very much missed by his family and friends.
We set up the trust to celebrate his life. Through the trust we support projects that offer young people opportunities, otherwise unavailable to them, to fulfil their potential and stay away from a life of crime.
Will was aware of his privileged background and was keen to help others – we feel the aims of the trust reflect where his interests would have been if he was alive today.
