The Prince’s Trust

The Prince’s Trust

Youth charity The Prince’s Trust helps young people to develop the confidence and skills they need to realise their ambitions, so that they can live, learn and earn. Founded by The Prince of Wales in 1976, the charity supports 11 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed, struggling at school and at risk of exclusion.

Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness, mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law. The programmes offered by the charity give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilise their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work. Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, education or training.

The Trust has helped over 950,000 young people to date and supports over 100 more each day.

But we are also calling on #government to commit to extra funding, to ensure #schools and #colleges can plan for the long term. Our commissioner Alastair Da Costa, said:

“We welcome the drive to place #employers at the core of the programme (…) If employers work more closely with local schools and colleges this might also allow more individuals to stay where they grew up rather than moving away to get a better job.

However, extra long-term resources will be key to the success of these schemes. They cannot just be a sticking plaster to address the immediate devastating impact of #COVID on #jobs and #training.”

He also emphasised the need to focus on #students from the most #disadvantaged backgrounds, who receive the least training as adults yet face more barriers.
