The Natalie Kate Moss Trust was setup in 2012 by the Moss family after the sudden death of Natalie; a sister, a daughter and a friend to many. The aim of the Trust is to support individuals who have suffered a brain injury through university life, and to generate funds for the continued research into the prevention and treatment of Brain Haemorrhages.
Having joined forces with Manchester University, The Natalie Kate Moss Trust supports students who have suffered a brain injury, to complete a degree course at the university. Those who survive injuries to their brain nearly always live the remainder of their lives with a disability. The Trust hopes to offer these individuals financial support, providing them with the opportunity to complete a degree at the University. Despite having been accepted into University many people with such disabilities are unable to attend because they cannot afford the additional support they require due to their condition, support which could be anything from help taking notes to specialised accommodation. The Natalie Kate Moss Trust looks to give people a chance to fulfil their potential.
Manchester University is also undergoing ground breaking research into the development of new treatments for Strokes. The Trust will also provide financial backing to this project, with the hope that in the future, rather than coping with the effects of such brain injuries, they can be avoided all together.
Did you know that over 100,000 people in the UK will have a stroke this year, 30% of them will be under the age of 55 and 1,000 under the age of 30. With such fresh memories of the devastation that brain haemorrhage can cause, the Moss Family hope that by supporting this research such heartache may, one day, be avoidable.
