Who We Are
We are Horizons Trust UK
Horizons Trust UK is the charity, founded by Professor James N'Dow, that initiated Horizons. Horizons Trust UK is responsible for developing Horizons' vision and strategy and is working to raise the funds needed to achieve Horizons' goals. Horizons Trust UK is based at the University of Aberdeen, School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition. Two other Horizons charities, Horizons Trust Gambia and Horizons Foundation US, work closely with and support Horizons Trust UK.
Horizons has pre-specified the extent and limits of its charitable activities and the three charities that comprise the Horizons charities will all align strictly to these charitable activities.
The Horizons International Strategy Sub-Committee, comprising representatives of all three charities, meet biannually to review and discuss strategic issues of common interest to the charities and advise Horizons Trust UK Trustees as necessary.
