|Introducing the Nuclear Education Trust|
The Nuclear Education trust exists to advance education by promoting the study and understanding of, and research into, arms control and disarmament, defence and security, with an emphasis on nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction.
A primary concern of the Charity is to make nuclear issues accessible to all regardless of age and ability and the greater part of its funding supports a peace education pack aimed at school children of different ages and abilities. Much of the work supported by the Charity is available to the general public on websites or via free publications. The Charity aims that such work is written to be comprehensible to the general public so as to advance understanding and knowledge of nuclear issues.
