Since Charles founded the trust in 1976, more than 870,000 disadvantaged young people across the UK have been helped. The trust aims to use its expertise and experience to help organisations overcome the global issue of youth unemployment, and have set up Prince’s Trust International to focus on supporting young people overseas.
