Nick Stace has today joined The Prince’s Trust as its new UK Chief Executive.

Nick joins The Trust at an exciting time of innovation and expansion. The charity recently launched an online learning and mentoring platform to complement its well established programmes to help disadvantaged young people to succeed in education and employment. Under Nick’s leadership The Prince’s Trust plans to extend its work to reach more than 70,000 young people a year.

Dame Martina Milburn, who has led the charity since 2004, has moved to Group Chief Executive, a role encompassing The Prince’s Trust in the UK, its start-up charity Prince’s Trust International and Prince’s Trust Australia.

Nick Stace said:

I am delighted to be joining The Trust at this key stage in its history. Over 40 years, The Trust has demonstrated its value, supporting young people to overcome their barriers and succeed in life. Today, with young people facing so many challenges and so much uncertainty, our work is more vital than ever. I look forward to working with our dedicated staff, volunteers, partners and supporters to give our young people the future they deserve.
