In England, it is estimated that 1 in 6 people have experienced a common mental health problem in the last week. Raising awareness of mental health and wellbeing is important work, and the theme of the 2021 day of awareness is 'Mental Health in an Unequal World'.
Over the last three years The Prince of Wales's Charitable Fund (PWCF) has awarded more than £600,000 to organisations and projects with a commitment to helping older people. Through our grant programmes, we have partnered with various organisations including Re-Engage, Erskine Hospital, Shared Lives Plus, Penny Brohn UK, Good Companions, Omega and the Carers Trust, to transform lives and promote social inclusion.
Last week, His Royal Highness The Duke of Rothesay visited a beneficiary of the PWCF COVID-19 Recovery Fund: Govan Home and Education Link Project (Govan HELP). The charity supports families with young children in the Govan area of Glasgow.
Toonspeak are on a mission to transform lives through creativity, supported by the Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund (PWCF). The charity runs free artist led workshops and creative projects for young people from across Glasgow, often during school holidays and always at zero cost to participants. The workshops and projects engage vulnerable children and families in deprived areas, and have a huge impact on those who participate.
We are delighted to reopen our small grant programme for applications from UK registered not-for-profit organisations. We are interested in considering funding applications for projects that would benefit a diverse group or community. We are also keen to support projects in deprived communities in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
We are pleased to share that The Prince’s Foundation has announced plans to create a new education and training base at The Prince of Wales’s Highgrove Estate in Gloucestershire. This will complement the work of the Foundation at Dumfries House in Scotland and at Charlotte Road in East London.
