The Josefina de Vasconcellos Arts Care Trust is a fully Registered Charity, No. 1119354, set up in honour of the work and ideals of Josefina de Vasconcellos, MBE.

The objectives of the Trust are: 1.the advancement of education in the work of Josefina de Vasconcellos for the benefit of the public .
2. The advancement of education of young people
by providing student exchanges between the UK and overseas.
3. The relief of financial need and sickness .

Much of Josefina's work was the basis for projects to benefit other people. Her desire was to give them new opportunities and outlets to develop skills and talents, to overcome difficulties, not only in the arts, but through them to new vistas.
Josefina died in 2005 at the age of one hundred, leaving behind fine examples of her work throughout the world. The work by which she is best known is her sculpture, but she was, as well, an accomplished poet, painter and composer.

The Charity is striving to work with people of all ages, cultural and educational backgrounds, in the community, continuing this work in the areas of the arts and of caring skills and attitudes.
