About 140 new jobs have been created and over 80,000 square feet of buildings saved in the past year by the work of The Prince’s Regeneration Trust (PRT).
The leading regeneration charity, which saves buildings and transform lives in some of the most deprived communities in the UK, has today published its Impact Report 2014-15, outlining its key achievements over the past year.
The report shows that PRT has worked on 43 projects over the past year, stimulating about £5million of funding from other organisations. It has supported 28 community groups carrying out heritage-led regeneration projects and saved about 890,00kg of carbon through the eco-friendly reuse of old buildings.
In the 19 years since it was created by our founder HRH Prince Charles, PRT has worked on a total of 91 projects, saved or created about 1,800 jobs and saved around 1.4million square feet of building space – enough to fill almost 32 football pitches. It has supported a total of 91 projects and saved about 15million kg of carbon over the period.
The impact report focuses on three of PRT's major projects over the past year – Middleport Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent, the Montagu Monuments in Northamptonshire and the BRICK education programme.
