post graduate chiropractors.
it's inception the trust fund has provided valuable
financial assistance to a number of chiropractors. Several
of those who benefited from the trust have related how it
"saved their lives" at the time. The condition that
beneficiaries must return to NSW has meant that a number of
chiropractors have returned to NSW to practice when
otherwise they would have gone elsewhere.
number of beneficiaries who have returned and had major
impact on the association and the profession the "return" on
those funds is beyond calculation.

whom expenses incurred during their training will create
hardship. In particular there will always be students whose
desire to become a chiropractor is restricted or postponed
due to financial constraints.
these students, and for the benefit to the profession in
years ahead, the trust fund seeks to provide financial
assistance in the form of low interest loans or grants.
