Tom Bowen Legacy Trust Fund UK

The Tom Bowen Legacy Trust Fund (TBLTF) was formed to support children with a variety of disabilities. The TBLTF offers help to children who have received Bowen Therapy treatment and provides gifts of electrical, mechanical, sensory and electronic equipment to enhance their quality of life.

TBLTF UK is a non-profit organisation, set up with a small charity consitution. It was set up in 2010 as the UK branch of the original fund based in Geelong, Australia, formed in 2003 by co-trustees Ron Phelan (member of the Bowen Therapists' Federation of Australia) and Chris Reed (president of the Bowen Association of Australia).

Tom Bowen (the originator of the various forms of Bowen Therapy taught today) found the time he spent helping children with disabilities extremely rewarding and the TBLTF was initiated to continue this important work.

Applications for grants can be made online or by requesting an application form on our contact page.
