Prince's Trust Programmes
The Prince's Trust delivers a
range of programmes across the UK. We work with young
people aged between 13 to 30.
We work with the young people who need our help the most,
including those who struggle at school, are in or leaving
care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the
law. We work with young people to help
them get back into work, education and training.
Our programmes give young people the practical and financial
support needed to stabilise their lives. They include engagement
activities, progression support and peer mentoring. We also involve
young people in the design and evaluation of programmes.
Most Prince’s Trust programmes include accreditation
opportunities but our experience is that, for the young people we
support, accreditation is less important than engagement,
confidence, life skills and personal development.
Our courses and programmes are delivered all across the UK.

really helpful because I know now I can go out and be something.
