Prince's Trust


The Prince’s Trust supports 13 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion.

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

Our programmes give young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilise their lives.

We help young people:

develop skills, prepare for work and improve their confidence through a structured 12-week personal development course, individually tailored personal development programmes and short engagement programmes

improve motivation and attendance at school through our network of xl clubs

work out whether self-employment is right for them by helping them to test their ideas, write plans and start their own businesses or achieve other goals in education, training, volunteering or work

overcome barriers and get their lives working with cash awards of between £50 and £500, and mentor support for those leaving care or prison

develop personal and social skills through residential schemes, group activities and tailored one-to-one support
