The development of this website was funded by CAPITB Trust. The trust is an independent charity providing support and funding for people employed or about to be employed in the British clothing industry.
The Trust was established in 1990 and each year seeks to make donations to projects that will enhance skills within the British clothing industry. CAPITB Trust is a perpetual trust and will continue to fund fashion training as long as the need exists.
The Grants Committee, made up of Board members who are experts from the industry, assess how each application will benefit the fashion and textiles industry.
CAPITB Trust also supports industry initiatives that showcase existing and emerging skilled individuals, such as the Golden Shears Awards with the Merchant Taylors. The Trust is also the headline supporter for Let’s Make It Here, a free online database of UK textile and clothing manufactures for designers, brands or retailers searching for production in the UK.
