Proud to support The Royal Commonwealth Society
The Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS) is a champion for the modern Commonwealth and the valuable youth networks it provides. It is active in developing programmes which facilitate young people’s involvement in improving the lives and prospects of all Commonwealth citizens.
Such programmes, often run in partnership with civil society and governments, address challenges which endanger the rights of citizens, limit opportunity and inhibit prosperity, such as access to education, early and child marriage, gender inequality, social violence and environmental threats.
The RCS is an independent charity that depends on the support of individuals who respect the values of democracy, the rule of law and human rights upon which the Commonwealth is based. Donations from members of the public are crucial in helping the RCS to fulfil its responsibility and inspire a generation of Commonwealth citizens to ensure those values are a living reality.

The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy
The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy (QCC) was launched in 2015 to honour the leadership of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, as Head of the Commonwealth for over six decades.
To commemorate such a historic achievement The Royal Commonwealth Society, together with charity Cool Earth and the Commonwealth Forestry Association, has set up a project with the ambition of creating a hugely significant environmental legacy for people throughout the Commonwealth to enjoy for generations to come.
The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy brings together a global network of conservation projects and seeks to raise awareness of the need to sustain a healthy population of trees for the future of our world. The programme has already secured support from 23 governments, but many more need to commit in order to reach its objective of establishing one QCC site in each Commonwealth nation.
We have contributed £160,640 from donations and policies sold so far…
