The Colt Foundation: improving people's working conditions

The Colt Foundation was founded in 1978 by I J (Jack) O’Hea and members of his immediate family.  The family had become concerned about the social responsibility implicit in the ownership of an industrial organisation the size of Colt, and established the Colt Foundation as a charitable trust with a gift of shares in the Colt Group of companies.

The work of the Foundation very much underpins the values of the Colt Group, as well as reflecting what the business does, in improving people’s living and working conditions.
