The Prince’s Trust is a youth charity that helps young people aged 11 to 30 get into jobs, education and training. Many of the young people they help are in, or leaving, care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health issues, or have been in trouble with the law. Their free programmes give young people the practical and financial support they need to stabilise their lives. They help them develop key skills while boosting their confidence and motivation so they can continue to dream big.
