Royal Foundation

£200,000 | Funding from 2017 to 2019

The Royal Foundation is committed to making a tangible and lasting difference to the people and causes close to the hearts of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. This includes improving awareness of mental health.

From helping young people around the country access sport and train as coaches, to making great strides in cracking down on the illegal wildlife trade, The Royal Foundation identifies and assists communities in need of support on a local and global scale.

Each year, The Royal Foundation convenes expert partners, provides seed funding and gives direct project management to help assess and evaluate projects in the following four areas

  • Tackling stigma relating to, raising awareness of, and developing initiatives to support mental health;
  • Transforming the lives of disadvantaged children and young people;
  • Improving the health and well-being of those who currently serve or previously served in the armed forces;
  • Creating a more sustainable world through global conservation.

Over the last six years, The Royal Foundation has launched 17 programmes in its key areas of focus. These include the Invictus Games, the Endeavour Fund, United for Wildlife, Full Effect and Coach Core, among others.

Most recently, The Royal Foundation launched Heads Together – a national mental health campaign to reduce the stigma of mental health and related issues. Funding from The Stone Family Foundation is helping to support The Royal Foundation’s ongoing mental health work.
