Our Royal Patron

HRH The Duchess of Cambridge is the Royal Patron of Place2Be. The Duchess' decision to support Place2Be is a reflection of her personal interest in and commitment to improving the mental health and emotional wellbeing of children in the UK.

Dame Benita Refson DBE, President and Founding Trustee, said:
"Place2Be is hugely honoured that The Duchess of Cambridge is our Royal Patron.

"This is a tremendous endorsement of the tireless work and commitment of our staff, volunteer counsellors and supporters, as well as of the partner schools with whom we work to help troubled children to overcome emotionally difficult times in their lives.

"The Duchess' support will help Place2Be hugely in its efforts to shine the spotlight on child mental health, and on the need to tackle these issues at the earliest possible stage, so that children have the brightest possible futures, as they deserve.

"By helping to raise awareness of Place2Be's early intervention work in schools, The Duchess will also help the charity to reach even more of the UK's most vulnerable children and their families who so desperately need support."
