Shetland Charitable Trust started life as Shetland Islands Council Charitable Trust (SICCT) in 1976 when Sullom Voe Terminal began operating.
The Trust was set up to receive and disburse money paid by the oil industry to the local community as compensation for the new terminal operating in Shetland.
Since then, the Trust has disbursed over £300m on charitable activities to a wide range of local charities, organisations and individuals. For examples of these see our who we fund page.
Today, Shetland Charitable Trust has a board of up to 15 Trustees.
