The Prince's Foundation for Children & the Arts
Classic FM works closely with The Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts, an arts education charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales, that gives every child in the United Kingdom the opportunity to be introduced to the arts.
Children and the Arts believes that every child has the right to be inspired the arts. The charity’s UK wide arts engagement programmes work with deprived children from areas of social and economic disadvantage by building partnerships between their schools and local cultural venues.
The charity takes children on a journey into their local arts venue and unlocks the arts for those who need to be inspired by them the most, raising children’s self-esteem and confidence, and nurturing their communication skills.
Since 2006 Children and the Arts has introduced over 360,000 children to life-changing arts experiences. Find out more about Children and the Arts’ life changing work on their website.
