Our Heritage: The Prince's Trust

In the UK, The Prince’s Trust has worked with over 950,000 young people since 1976.

Established by our founder, HRH The Prince of Wales, during an earlier time of huge economic uncertainty, The Prince’s Trust was built upon the commitment that every young person should have the chance to succeed.

Today, The Prince’s Trust is the UK’s leading youth charity, helping young people aged between 11 and 30 who are struggling at school, unemployed, dealing with mental health problems or at risk of exclusion. The Prince’s Trust provides opportunities for young people to re-engage with education, start careers and launch their own businesses.

In 2016 it was revealed that The Prince’s Trust had returned £1.4 billion to society in the last decade.
