His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has a long history of social innovation and meaningful involvement with impactful programs. He is a leader in identifying charitable need, setting up and driving forward charities which address these needs.
The Prince of Wales’ close connection with Australia dates back nearly fifty years, starting when he spent time here as a student with Geelong Grammar School in 1966.
This marked the beginning of a lifelong affection held by The Prince of Wales for Australia, its landscape and people. His desire to further support Australia inspired the establishment of The Prince’s Charities Australia in January 2013. In July 2017, The Prince’s Charities Australia officially changed its name to The Prince’s Trust Australia. His Royal Highness is the President of The Prince’s Trust Australia.
The Prince’s Trust believes that every young person should have the chance to succeed. As the U.K.’s leading charity for young people, The Prince’s Trust helps 11 to 30 year olds who are unemployed or struggling at school to transform their lives.
The Prince’s Trust Australia is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (A.C.N.C.). The A.C.N.C. has created the Registered Charity Tick to assist the public identify organisations in our sector of their charitable status alongside listing on the Charity Register. Core responsibilities for the registration include submissions of annual reports and keeping information up-to-date such as our Responsible Persons registrar, which highlights our accountability and transparency as an organisation.
