Prince’s Trust

About the Prince’s Trust

The Prince’s Trust helps young people all over the UK to build their confidence and skills and supports them into jobs, education and training. Founded by The Prince of Wales in 1976, and was established to help with the record number of unemployment and spreading of riots across Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, and Brixton where young people felt like they didn’t have a stake in society.

Since that time, they have been an action oriented charity, supporting young people between the ages of 11 – 30 to get into employment; education; or training, helping to build both confidence and skills.

The Prince’s Trust has now supported more than 1,000,000 young people across the UK.

If you are 16 – 30, and not currently in education, employment (over 16 hours per week) or training the Prince’s Trust has many free courses that can that help you on your journey into health and care.
