We're delighted to announce that from July we'll be joining forces with the Prince’s Foundation for Building Community (PFBC) to boost the importance of heritage and regeneration in the built environment.
The Prince’s Regeneration Trust will become a subsidiary of PFBC, alongside its international arm, INTBAU. We will continue to deliver a programme of advisory work on heritage projects and of course our highly-regarded BRICK community education programme. The Prince's Regeneration Trust team will also join PFBC’s at their Shoreditch offices.
Our own subsidiary charity, the United Kingdom Historic Building Preservation Trust, which owns Middleport Pottery and other sites, will operate as an independent charity, with HRH The Prince of Wales also continuing as its Patron.
Prince's Regeneration Trust Chairman Ian Marcus said, 'I am delighted that the two built environment charities founded by HRH The Prince of Wales have come together and as a result will be in an even stronger position to help communities across the UK to preserve and reuse important heritage buildings.'
David Brownlow, Chairman of PFBC, said “I am very pleased that The Prince’s Regeneration Trust is joining The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community.
There has never been a more important time to devote resource and expertise to Britain’s heritage. The combined resources of these two organisations will offer an unprecedented level of knowledge and experience, to help protect, revitalize and learn from Britain’s built heritage. It will enable us to better deliver the vision of our shared founder.”
This consolidation of energy and expertise promises an even more resilient future for Britain’s built heritage.
