The Royal Warrant Holders Association (RWHA) was formed in 1840. Its main objective is to ensure the continued existence of the Royal Warrant as a treasured and respected institution. It helps to administer applications for new Royal Warrants and changes to existing ones. The Queen Elisabeth scholarship Trust (QEST) is the charitable arm of the Royal Warrant Holders Association, a Craft Charity that funds the education of talented craftspeople through traditional college courses, apprenticeships or one-on-one training with masters. RWHA and QEST share resources, office spaces, utilities and stationery, and often hold collaborative events.
