The Fire Service and The Trust

The Fire Service and The Prince's Trust have worked together since 1992 igniting potential in young people.

Since 1992, many Fire and Rescue Services have benefited from their work with The Prince’s Trust. Currently 18 services directly deliver nearly 20% of all the Team programmes in the UK. An even greater number support and work in partnership with The Trust on other programmes, such as xl, Enterprise, Get Started, Get Into and the Fairbridge programme.

Watch the below film to see how the partnership has benefited one of our young people:

Peter Holland CBE OStJ QFSM FIFireE
Chief Fire & Rescue Adviser

"These Fire and Rescue Services are seeing the real benefits to their own staff’s development, their communities and partnerships. Also a shared vision means better outcomes. Working together in the community is important and it enables the Fire & Rescue Service not only to meet their own targets but also contribute to other community agendas such as improving health, educational underachievement, worklessness, reducing crime and anti social behaviour.
Above all they are helping young people make their communities better places."
