Prince's Trust, The Business Programme

The Prince's Trust is a charity in the United Kingdom founded in 1976 by The Prince of Wales to help young people.

Aim of the trust:
The young people helped by The Prince's Trust are the long-term unemployed, people who have been in trouble with the law, people who are in difficulty at school, and people who have been in care. These young people are considered by the Prince's Trust to have a "disadvantaged background" and are generally referred to by The Prince's Trust as being "disadvantaged". Some young people who are employed also go on Prince’s Trust courses as a training and development opportunity funded by their employer, but they can only attend if their employer pays course fees to The Prince’s Trust.

The Prince's Trust is a youth charity that helps change young lives.
 They give practical and financial support, developing key workplace skills such as confidence and motivation. Prince's Trust work with 14 to 30-year-olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law.

The Prince's Trust have helped more than 600,000 young people since 1976 and support 100 more each working day. More than three in four young people they helped last year moved into work, education or training.
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.
