The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust was established in 2012 to mark and celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s 60 years as Head of the Commonwealth. Trustees decided to dedicate 20% of the available funds to the Queen’s Young Leaders Programme, seeking to empower a new generation of Commonwealth leaders. The balance (nearly £80 million) was pledged to a five-year strategic programme to tackle avoidable blindness.
The Trust commissioned the Institute of Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) to review its approach to the Avoidable Blindness Programme.
