Posted: 7th Jan 2016
Celebrating 40 years of Prince's Trust:
“The Prince’s Trust is an ambitious and innovative organization, constantly seeking new ways to provide even better support to our young people”
Youth charity The Prince’s Trust helps disadvantaged young people turn their lives around. They run a range of programme’s to help unemployed young people gain the skills and confidence they need to find a job or training opportunity, or set up their own business.
The Prince’s Trust was founded in 1976 by the Prince Charles himself. After completing his duty in the Royal Navy, the Prince had a bold idea- to help improve the lives of disadvantaged young people in the UK. The Prince founded his trust to deliver on that commitment.

The Prince’s Trust has over 1,100 staff and 6,000 volunteers and they have helped over 56,000 young people across the UK. They cover England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland delivering programmes and services from their network of offices and centres. To find out more about the services click here.
“We are not just a charity, we are thought leaders in all issues relating to young people”
As a leading UK charity, they strive to change the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable young people and make a positive contribution to society.
Take a look at all the information that outlines their priorities and achievements.
On Monday 4th January at 9pm, ITV aired a unique documentary; When Ant & Dec met the Prince: 40 years of the Prince’s Trust.
Ant and Dec were granted a real insight into the work of The Prince’s Trust as they accompanied His Royal Highness on a number of engagements – chatting to him along the way, meeting people who have benefited directly from the charity and witnessing, first-hand, the passion that The Prince has for The Trust he founded in 1976. With extensive access to Clarence House, St James’s Palace and Kensington Palace, the duo spoke openly to those closest to His Royal Highness – The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry – who told Ant and Dec what drives The Prince in his work for charity and also shared some rather revealing and funny stories from their lives with The Prince of Wales.
