Why we need a Refugee Delivery Lead

This year, we aim to help more than 50,000 young people, with three in four young people on our programmes, moving into work, education or training. The young people we help face a range of challenges, such as unemployment, mental health issues or some have been in trouble with the law. Our job is to inspire and support young people, to help them reach their potential so that they can thrive and society can prosper.  

We believe all young people should have the chance to succeed, and that young people are the key to a positive and prosperous future for all of us.

  • Continue to develop strategic partnerships with World Jewish Relief, Refugee Action and others with whom we have already made contact to ensure active referral pathways to programmes.
  • Identify and build partnerships with other relevant organisations and partners working with refugees across the UK to enable us to broaden our reach.
  • Capture and analyse information about where and how we are working with refugees and use that data to drive further improvement actions.
  • Provide insight into the needs of refugees so we can deliver more relevant and/or enhanced support and develop our programmes where required.
  • Provide advice and support to staff on how they can best reach and engage with refugees through outreach.
  • Ensuring that barriers to accessing our programmes for refugees are identified and addressed.
  • Work with Fundraising colleagues to identify and secure funding opportunities relevant to refugees.
  • Enhance colleagues’ understanding of the experiences of refugees through communication and learning opportunities, which will, in turn, improve the support we can offer.
  • Work with delivery colleagues to identify our existing work with refugees and identify new opportunities for delivery.

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.
