London Funders/London Emergencies Trust

The London Emergencies Trust (LET) was originally established as a dormant company with charitable purposes in December 2015. London Funders was asked to host the dormant company and therefore acts as the Company Secretary for the LET.

The company secretary is responsible for the efficient administration of a company, particularly with regard to ensuring compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements and for ensuring that decisions of the board of trustees are implemented.

The LET was established by the former trustees of the London Bombings Relief Charitable Trust Fund, which successfully distributed £10million of public donations to the families and those caught up in the 7/7 bombings in 2005. The decision to establish the LET followed the terrorist incident at the Bacalan in Paris in November 2015.

The LET was mobilised in March 2017 following the Westminster Bridge incident.  It is an independent charity, with its own trustees and a small executive team provided in part pro bono by London Funders members and with an Interim Director.  The LET’s costs are being met by grants from Independent Trusts and Foundations so 100% of public donations reach the victims and their dependants.
