Company Description

The Prince’s Trust believes every young person should be given the chance to flourish.

Since 1976, we’ve achieved a great deal, supporting more than 1,000,000 young people across the UK, and have returned £1.4 billion in value to society over the last ten years alone. Yet, this still represents only a small proportion of the young people who might benefit from our support. Three in four young people on our programmes move into work, education or training. Our job is to inspire and support them, to help them reach their potential, so that they can thrive and society can prosper. 

Many of the young people we help are disadvantaged, either in, or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health issues, or have been in trouble with the law.

Our free programmes give young people the practical skills and financial support they need to stabilise their lives. We help them develop key skills while boosting their confidence and motivation so they can continue to dream big.
