The Prince's Trust is a youth charity that helps change young lives.
We give practical and financial support, developing key workplace skills, such as confidence and motivation. We work with 11 to 30-year-olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law.
We have helped more than 875,000 young people since 1976 and support 100 more each working day. More than three in four young people we helped last year moved into work, education or training.
If you're a young person looking for support, call us on 0800 842 842. We're open from 9am-9pm, seven days a week.
Many of the young people we help are in, or leaving, care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health issues, or have been in trouble with the law.
We have returned £1.4 billion in value to society through our help for disadvantaged young people over the last 10 years alone.
Our free programmes give young people the practical and financial support they need to stabilise their lives. We help them develop key skills while boosting their confidence and motivation so they can continue to dream big.
2015–2018 strategy lays out the direction of The Prince’s Trust through and beyond our 40th anniversary year. Over the next three years we will address the complex issues faced by many young people today, providing a more holistic end-to-end offering, with better support onto, between and beyond our core programmes.
