Business Description

Princes Trust is a Charity Organisation dedicated to supporting young people aged 11 - 30 across the UK, we do this through our programmes to help young people during educations or after to get into employment, training, self employment, confidence building and much more. It all began in 1976, when HRH The Prince of Wales had a bold idea. Having completed his duty in the Royal Navy, His Royal Highness became dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged young people in the UK. He founded His Trust to deliver on that commitment.
