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 17
services deliver the Team programme and 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
Peter Holland CBE OStJ QFSM
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
