Derwen Charity supports Derwen College.
The charity provides extra experiences and opportunities for our students to truly progress and thrive.
Derwen Charity has helped shape the College according to our students’ needs over the past 90 years. Thanks to fundraising and donations, the College has been able to grow and adapt, and become a leader among SEND colleges.
Here’s how you can support Derwen Charity during 2023.
