Diana and Charles' charities link up to aid young refugees

The charities of Diana, Princess of Wales and Prince Charles are working together for the first time.

The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund and the Prince's Trust have joined forces to help young refugees, a subject close to the hearts of both.

"The Diana Memorial Fund has been involved with young refugees through its Awards in Schools scheme, and we have found that they are overrepresented in the target groups we try to help," said Katherine Mahoney, spokesperson at the Prince's Trust. "This shared interest brought us together."

Through the partnership, the charities have worked on the Starting Over report looking at the difficulties and aspirations of young refugees, and run pilot projects in Liverpool, Glasgow and London.

The report, launched today, shows that young refugees are at risk of isolation and social exclusion because many leave their parents and families to flee persecution.
