1851 Trust
Our strategic partners financially support us to expand our work - either through developing new programmes or extending into new areas. We couldn’t grow without them and thank them for all their support.
Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.

The 1851 Trust charity engages young people with the cutting edge technology developed in sailing. It is a truly inspiring journey where sport and science meet, where adventure and excellence begins. The Trust was launched by Sir Ben Ainslie and Sir Keith Mills (as Chair) alongside their British challenge for the 35th America's Cup. Since the launch of their Tech Deck education space and STEM Crew digital education platform inspired by America's Cup sailing, they have hosted 10,000 young people for STEM workshops and STEM Crew has developed into a STEM education hub used by thousands of teachers.

The 1851 Trust shines a new light on science, engineering and technology, helping to build essential life skills and opening up new opportunities.
