The John Smith Trust seeks to promote good governance, social justice and the rule of law by nurturing a new generation of leaders committed to making a difference in their countries and societies.
The John Smith Trust was formed in 1996 to provide a permanent memorial to one of Britain’s best-loved politicians with the aim of honouring him by promoting the ideals he held dear. A registered charity, the Trust is actively supported by all the major parties in the UK, and a broad range of individuals and organisations across the public, private and third sectors.
