About The Prince’s Trust
Youth charity The Prince’s Trust helps young people to develop the confidence and skills they need to realise their ambitions, so that they can live, learn and earn. Founded by The Prince of Wales in 1976, the charity supports 11 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed, struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness, mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law. The programmes offered by the charity give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilise their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work. Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, education or training. The Trust has helped over 900,000 young people to date and supports over 150 more each day.
About The Trust’s Enterprise programme
The Prince’s Trust Enterprise programme works with 18-30 year olds to turn big ideas into business reality. It gives young people training, mentoring support, resources and funding; wherever and however young people need it. Since 1983, The Prince’s Trust has helped more than 85,000 young people into business. Its Enterprise programme supports potential entrepreneurs with training and mentoring to help them learn business basics, write a business plan and test their idea, and even offers them access to funding. The Prince’s Trust recently introduced Prince’s Trust Online, which offers an online version of the programme to support young entrepreneurs; so whether it’s face-to-face or online, the support is there to get their business ideas off the ground and become their own boss.
