The Trustees

at work

Your local representative

Most Probation and Cafcass areas have an Edridge Rep who deals with enquiries and encourages colleagues to support the fund.


Most applications for help are sent direct to our Administrator Sarah Byatt, but you can discuss you application with your local Edridge Representative. You can also call the voicemail and one of our team will come back to you, or email Sarah Byatt email, if you are not sure about something.


The Trustees consider most applications by exchanging views by email, and these decisions are ratified at the next Trustee meeting, which happens every two months. In case of emergencies applications can be dealt with very quickly. In all cases we try to deal with applications within three weeks, but the decision is often faster than that.
