Objectives

The Burnbake Trust is a charity based in Wilton, Salisbury. It was founded by the late Jean Davis in 1968 to help offenders and ex-offenders keep out of the penal system by introducing them to the arts. The Trust was registered as a charity in 1975 and now, in addition to the work it does with offenders, has diversified and helps disadvantaged local people by supplying them with low-cost furniture and household goods donated by the public.

Activities

We provide a small grant for art materials for offenders who register with us.  In return we ask them to send us their finished work and we exhibit it for them.. The offender gets 70% of the sale price and what is left over is re-invested into purchasing art materials.
