The Prince’s Charities in Burnley

HRH The Prince of Wales has long been a champion of using an integrated and holistic approach to solve complex problems.  In 2006 he invited key stakeholders from the public and private sector to Clarence House to discuss how the combined Prince’s Charities could work together on the opportunities and challenges that faced the people of Burnley.

The Burnley Project began formally in July 2008 with initial financial support from the North West Regional Development Agency which supported The Charities work to:

  • Support the regeneration of the built environment particularly by revitalising Burnley’s heritage buildings
  • Raise the educational performance, achievement and aspiration in Burnley schools
  • Develop entrepreneurs in Burnley and support local businesses
  • Promote community cohesion and develop the appreciation of a multi faith, mixed heritage community
  • Instill local pride and create a positive image of Burnley in the region and nationally for it to become attractive for investors and big employers

In 2011 there are 12 of the Prince of Wales’ charities working in partnership with others on projects in Burnley and supporting the work of Burnley Council and the Burnley Bondholders.
