The Prince's Trust supports vulnerable young people to get their lives on track. They may be homeless, battling mental health problems, have been in trouble with the law or have lost hope after a long stretch of unemployment. The best way to help a young person create a better future for themselves, is to build their skills and confidence. No matter what start they have had, young people can succeed. They just need the right support and that is you!
Many of the young people we help are in, or leaving, care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law. More than a quarter of young people (28 per cent) do not feel in control of their lives, A third of young people (36 per cent) do not feel in control of their job prospects and more than one in ten (16 per cent) think their life will amount to nothing.
Our programmes help disadvantaged young people in developing valuable skills and gain experience which is vital to making the next step. The benefits are clear, as over 77% of the young people who have attended a Prince's Trust course or programme go into jobs, education or training. Our work relies on the generosity of our donors and our fantastic outcomes are a testament to the difference that your donation can make.
By making a donation to The Prince's Trust you can help give a vulnerable young person a second chance. We aim to help 60,000 vulnerable young people to believe in themselves again and take steps towards a brighter future, but we will need support from every quarter in order to reach our target. By working with us, you can be a part of the solution to the issues young people our facing and help them to regain control of their lives!
