The Michael Roberts Charitable Trust (MRCT) was founded by Gary and Teresa Knott in 1997 as a registered charity and company limited by guarantee.
The trust is named after Michael Roberts, a gentleman with Down’s Syndrome (a learning disability) whose personal faith and concern for other people have inspired many who knew him.
MRCT is a Christian ministry that sets out to show the love and compassion of Jesus Christ to all those it encounters. This it does by developing voluntary work and social opportunities for people often perceived as being disadvantaged, either because of a disability or owing to a social difficulty.
Its activities not only cover our own town of Harlow, where the work is based, but also extend into the surrounding community and wherever else the Lord directs it.
