Helping Salford women pursue careers in nursing, medicine and allied professions.
The Trust was established in 1996 as a memorial to Feryal Rajah, a well-known and much respected doctor and wife of the then Leader of Salford City Council, Councillor John Merry. Feryal, who sadly passed away in 1995, had a passionate interest in education and the advancement of women’s opportunities.
The trust was set up to help women with their studies and since it was established, there have been over £10,000 of grants awarded to 30 Salford women in need of help with their studies.
Any woman who lives in Salford and wants to pursue a career in nursing, medicine or allied professions (such as physiotherapy, chiropody or dietetics to name a few) and is experiencing financial difficulties.

The trustees of The Feryal Rajah Educational Trust include: Councillor John Merry – Deputy Mayor, Salford city Council and Councillor John Warmisham - Elected Member, Langworthy Ward.
