The Franchise Trust

The Franchise Trust is a registered charity in England and Wales. Its Trustees are responsible for governing the Trust and directing how it is managed and run.

The purpose of the Trust is to deliver educational courses to individuals. The courses are designed to help individuals develop knowledge, skills and capabilities in business – including the practical application of business skills when setting up and running a business.

The courses will be open to all, but priority will be given to those individuals who have been assessed as being in greatest need because of:


·       Financial hardship

·       Age

·       Ill health; and

·       Any other reason that may disadvantage those individuals in gaining access to educational opportunities


The Trustees are experts of longstanding in franchising and have considerable experience in the sector. Some Trustees are also bfa Companions.
