Daniel Galvin Jr is an official partner of The Prince’s Trust
Youth charity, The Prince’s Trust helps disadvantaged young people to get their lives on track. It supports 13 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. Many of the young people helped by The Prince’s Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or they have been in trouble with the law. The Trust’s programmes 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. HRH The Prince of Wales’s charity has helped more than 700,000 young people since 1976 and supports 100 more each day.

Where the money goes
The Prince’s Trust runs a range of programmes to help disadvantaged young people to turn their lives around and enter the world of work. These range from the Team programme, a 12-week personal development scheme helping young people build self-esteem and skills for the workplace, to the Enterprise Programme – which gives young people the know-how to set up their own businesses. The Trust also runs xl clubs in schools and pupil referral units, helping excluded young people and those at risk of exclusion by engaging them with their education, and the Fairbridge programme – a personal development scheme based in 15 centres nation-wide. Disadvantaged young people can also apply for grants from The Trust, giving them basic financial support to help develop their skills and employability.
84p out of every pound is spent directly on developing and delivering programmes and services for young people.
