The Prince's Trust Group

The Prince’s Trust Group’s mission is to transform lives and build sustainable communities across the world.

Together, we supported over 60,000 young people (pdf, 3mb) during 2020/21.

The Prince’s Trust Group is a global network of charities founded by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. Our mission is to transform lives and build sustainable communities worldwide, with a particular focus on supporting young people into education, employment and enterprise.

Our network includes The Prince’s Trust in the UK, which was founded in 1976. Over the past 45 years, we have supported over one million young people in the UK to change their lives for the better. 

Building on our deep foundations in the UK, we established Prince’s Trust International in 2015 to work with partners to support young people across the Commonwealth and beyond. Since then, we have also established Prince’s Trust AustraliaPrince’s Trust New ZealandPrince’s Trust Canada and Prince’s Trust USA

We also began our work in St Lucia and the USA.

Through their incredible generosity and thanks to our other valued supporters, we are expanding our work to transform young lives and build stronger communities across the world.
