GRIT was set up in honour of Gerry Rogan who died prematurely in 2003. The Trust reflects Gerry's dedication to working with young people, including those who may have fallen through the cracks of the education and training system. The Trust seeks to provide a unique support structure for these young people. Established to promote Gerry's belief that all young people, if given appropriate encouragement and support, have the potential to take their place in the world, the primary focus of GRIT is to ensure that young people are provided with quality assistance that addresses their unique needs.
