Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to visit ex-offenders charity

Wednesday November 6, 2013

William and Kate have confirmed their visit to charity Only Connect's head office on Tuesday 19 November.

The royal couple will speak with employees at the crime prevention charity to learn how Only Connect supports ex-offenders and young people at risk of offending. The charity will also explain how they collaborate with other organisations in their field.

William and Kate will then visit two complimentary projects at the head office — Bounce Back, which works with prisons, and Handmade Alliance, which trains prisoners in textile making.

After the visit, the new parents will enjoy a dance performance at a nearby Only Connect project venue.

Soon after the birth of Prince George in July, William announced that he would retire from his miliatry career to take on more royal duties.

On Wednesday, the second-in-line to the throne carried on with his charity work and paid a visit to St Giles Trust in London. There he met clients, advisors and staff to discuss how the charity helps offenders and disadvantaged people rebuild their lives.
