Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2010, The Prince’s Countryside Fund’s vision isthe only UK-wide charity that empowers family farms and rural communities to ensure their future.Over the past decade, The Prince’s Countryside Fund has invested more than £10 million to over 400 projects working across the UK which improve service provision in rural areas, support farming businesses and rural enterprises, and provide training opportunities for young people.We’ve supported nearly 1000 farming families to take charge of their business through The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme, and working with our Farm Support Group Initiative, helped countless others to access local support when it’s needed most.

The countryside, what it does, what it produces and what it offers impacts on us all. The Prince’s Countryside Fund wishes to see a thriving countryside – a living, breathing, working place, so that it is there for everyone. In order to create a real future for rural Britain, we work in a number of ways:

  • Investing at least £500,000 through our grant programmes for rural communities to catalyse community-led solutions, and illuminating their success so that others can follow 
  • Leading initiatives, such as The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme which offers free business skills training to family farms across the UK
  • Developing new schemes to assist young people and new entrants into farming and strengthening our networks of support such as the Farm Support Groups Initiative so they are ready and able to provide local support to farming communities 
  • Commissioning research into issues affecting farming families and rural communities.
  • Being an advocate for the countryside by bringing together individuals and businesses to help tackle current challenges such as the climate crisis
  • Helping communities in crisis through our Emergency Fund and by collaborating with Farming Help
