The Prince’s Trust was founded in 1976 by The Prince of Wales. Having completed his duty in the Royal Navy, His Royal Highness became dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged young people in the UK, and began ‘The Trust’ to deliver on that commitment.
Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training.
Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10 million a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1 billion every year.
The Princes Trust address this by giving practical and financial support to the young people who need it most. They help develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling young people to move into work, education or training.
The Princes Trust run programmes that encourage young people to take responsibility for themselves — helping them build the life they choose rather than the one they’ve ended up with.
Gareth Paton — Business Development Manager of Kings Security Systems provided professional interview mentoring and mock interviews in order to help prepare the young people for the real thing.
