Charity description

The Queen's Commonwealth Trust logo
We champion young leaders who are making a difference. We provide a platform where their voices are heard, their work is promoted and their ideas and expertise are taken seriously. 
We support, fund and connect these young people, sharing their stories and know-how to inspire thousands more to get started. They demonstrate the values of the Commonwealth in action, through their leadership, energy and optimism.

How we work: 
1. We provide small grants to young people who have founded their own not-for-profit organisation, or who are leading projects in their communities. All grants go to youth-led initiatives that provide practical help to others. Funding is usually distributed through a small network of charity partners so our central overhead can remain as small as possible. 
2. We share their results on our website and social media channels, along with young leaders’ stories and expertise, and practical guides on how to start developing an enterprise or project. 
3. We share relevant and helpful expertise from thought-leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs. In time, we will provide mentoring and advice to young people through webinars, podcasts and Google Hangouts.
