Medical Scholarships

The Trust is working with Bristol and Newcastle Universities to help train more doctors. Although medical students are eligible for grants and student loans whilst training, those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds often face financial difficulties and may even be put off starting such a course and career.

Thanks to generous legacies received from supporters over the years, the Trustees are able to make grants each year and to fund the Medical Scholarships. However, for this to continue, we always welcome donations. PLEASE HELP US TO HELP OTHERS, as a regular giver, by considering leaving a legacy in your Will, through corporate giving or organising fundraising events. We look forward to hearing from you. All donations are gratefully received.

The Lady Ryder of Warsaw Memorial Trust was set up by Baroness Ryder of Warsaw CMG OBE shortly before her death in 2000 so that her good works could continue.

All of Sue Ryder's work is a living memorial to all those millions who gave their lives during two World Wars in defence of human values, and to the countless others who are suffering and dying today as result of persecution.
