The Alex Timpson Trust

About Alex Timpson’s Trust

The Alex Timpson Trust is the official company charity of the Timpson Group.

Helping Children to Shine
Alex Timpson MBE died in January 2016. In tribute to Alex and the huge contribution she made to championing the rights of looked after children, the Timpson family has established a new charity in her honour – the Alex Timpson Trust.

Working with Home-Start Trafford, Salford, Wigan

Alex was once a Home-Start volunteer and was passionate about helping families, Sir John was interested in our Baby Bond project because The Alex Timpson Trust support the development of training courses on attachment awareness and the three books John Timpson has written on the subject – A Guide to Attachment, How to Create A Positive Future and Looking After Looked After Children – are made freely available to help raise wider awareness of the reasons why some looked after children behave in ways that are challenging and perplexing.
