The Police Service and The Trust

The majority of police forces in the UK support The Prince’s Trust by seconding officers and staff to help deliver programmes.

Why is the police service involved?

The police and The Trust share common objectives of engaging with the hardest to reach young people and diverting them away from crime and anti-social behaviour. The Prince’s Trust is the largest UK youth charity and their programmes have a proven track record of helping young people into employment, education and training and therefore away from crime.

The partnership also improves confidence of young people in the police and promotes positive relationships between officers and young people in their local communities. For the officers and staff involved, a secondment provides a unique development opportunity and a challenging but incredibly rewarding experience.

Why is The Trust involved?

The Prince’s Trust is committed to working in partnership with the police as well as the other uniformed services. The Trust value the commitment, motivation and skills that police officers and staff add to their programmes and know they are excellent role models for young people.

I am very clear that this type of partnership – between the police, local authority and the voluntary sector – provides a really powerful basis for developing programmes to reduce re-offending.
