About The Prince's Trust

We believe that every young person should have the chance to embrace exciting opportunities. So, we help 11 to 30 year-olds to find the tools and confidence to try free courses and start careers. 

Since The Trust was founded by The Prince of Wales in 1976, we have helped more than a million young people across the UK, and three in four of those we supported over the last five years have moved into work, education, or training. 

Meet Emma-May Millar! She is our Watches of Switzerland Group Young Change Maker Award winner at our 2022 Prince's Trust and TK Maxx & Homesense Awards. Find out more about Emma-May, and all our winners, here.

How we support young people

We are open to young people aged 11 to 30 from all over the UK - no matter if they have been facing some serious issues such as homelessness or if they've been in trouble with the law. If they're willing to aim high - we are here.

We have returned £1.4 billion in value to society through our help for young people over a period of just ten years.

We work with delivery partners across the UK to offer hundreds of free courses, grants and mentoring opportunities to inspire young people to build their confidence and start a career. We will be there to support them to achieve their full potential. 

By taking part and fundraising for Palace to Palace you could be the turning point for a young life.

We're very proud that Watches of Switzerland is the headline sponsor of Palace to Palace 2022.

Thank you to Magic Radio who do an amazing job at spreading Palace to Palace fever throughout the UK.
