The Prince’s Trust is a charity in the United Kingdom founded in 1976 by Charles, Prince of Wales, and Frederick John Pervin to help young people. They run a range of training programmes, provide mentoring support and offer financial grants to build the confidence and motivation of disadvantaged young people. Each year they work with about 60,000 young people, with around 80% moving on to Employment, Education, Training or Volunteering.
In 1999, the numerous Trust charities were brought together as The Prince’s Trust and was acknowledged by The Queen at a ceremony in Buckingham Palace where she granted it a Royal Charter. The following year it devolved in Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and other English regions but overall control remained in London. The Prince’s Trust fundraising and campaign events are often hosted and features entertainers around the world to perform. In April 2011 the youth charity Fairbridge became part of the Trust.
The Prince’s Trust is one of the most successful funding organisations in the UK and the UK’s leading youth charity, having helped over 825,000 young people turn their lives around, created 125,000 entrepreneurs and given business support to 395,000 people in the UK.
