Youth charity The Prince’s Trust gives practical and financial support, developing key workplace skills such as confidence and motivation. It works with 13 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed or at risk of unemployment through underachieving in education. The Prince of Wales’ charity has helped more than 650,000 young people since 1976 and supports 100 more each working day. Last year, three in four of the young people supported by The Trust moved into work, education, training or volunteering. For more information please go to princes-trust.org.uk
