In partnership with The Prince's Trust

Cunard is a proud partner of this inspiring charity, helping change young people’s lives for the better.

Launched in 1976, The Prince's Trust aims to help disadvantaged young people by offering the support needed to overcome personal, academic and social barriers to achieve their potential and stabilise their lives. To date they have helped over 1 million young people across the UK.

In 2018, The Prince’s Trust expanded to communities across the world including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and most recently, America.

Platinum Patrons

In the presence of His Majesty King Charles III, the Queen Consort named our ship Queen Victoria in December 2007, marking the beginning of a journey with Cunard and The Prince’s Trust to help as many young people as possible realise their potential.

As Platinum Patrons of The Trust, we are incredibly proud to be part of a group of the most dedicated supporters, enabling change on a large scale alongside some of the world’s leading companies, charitable foundations and philanthropists.

Celebrating Queen Victoria’s 15th Anniversary and our partnership with The Trust

Celebrate this significant milestone with a special voyage around the British Isles, departing Southampton on 20 August 2023 as we commemorate Queen Victoria’s 15th anniversary alongside 15 years of our partnership with The Prince’s Trust. Enjoy performances and insightful talks from a range of special guests, as you’re joined on board by some of the incredible young people The Trust have supported over the years.

Our partnership so far

Thanks to the continuous generosity of our guests, crew and friends, we have raised over £2.7 million so far thanks to the generosity of our guests and the determination of our colleagues on both land and at sea that take part in so many fundraising challenges, from Future Steps to cycling miles during the annual Palace to Palace bike ride challenge to participating in The Prince's Trust entrepreneurial Million Makers competition.

As well as supporting The Trust with crucial fundraising, we work with local teams to offer employability workshops on board our ships and at our Head Office in Southampton, to help equip young people with the skills and confidence to enter the travel industry, raise aspirations and open up a wide range of careers on land and at sea.

How to donate.

Many of the fundraising activities take place on board our ships, however you can still help us to continue in supporting this worthy cause from ashore.
