At its heart, The Prince’s Foundation is about supporting people to create community. Whether through building sustainable housing or regenerating neighbourhoods, developing family attractions or teaching traditional arts and skills, The Prince’s Foundation is leading the way forward.
The Prince’s Foundation was created by the merging of The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community, The Prince’s Regeneration Trust, The Great Steward of Scotland’s Dumfries House Trust and The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts in 2018. This combined force enables the charity to achieve His Royal Highness’s goal of creating harmonious communities, through three core tiers.
Firstly: Education. The Foundation will continue to offer innovative and inspiring skills-based courses in a broad range of subjects, from traditional arts and heritage craft skills, to architecture and design, science, engineering, horticulture and hospitality, all emphasising the greater social cohesion that transpires when members of a community learn, as well as live, together. Programmes will take place within and beyond the charity’s sites, including at Dumfries House, with its Education Farm, STEM centre and Health and Wellbeing Centre, and in Shoreditch, East London.
