The Prince's Trust Programmes
The Prince's Trust delivers a range of programmes across the UK working with young people aged between 13 to 30. The programmes give young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilise their lives. They include engagement activities, progression support and peer mentoring.
Enterprise programme - supports unemployed young people aged 18-30 to work out if their business ideas are viable and whether self-employment is right for them. Depending on the outcome of this process, the programme can then offer mentoring support and, for those that really need it, financial support to start a business or mentoring support to secure goals in employment, education or training.

About The Prince's Trust
The Prince's Trust supports 13 to 30 years old who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion.
Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10million a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1 billion every year.
Many of the young people The Prince's Trust help are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law.
The Prince's Trust programmes give young people the practical and financial support they need to stabilise their lives, helping them to develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling young people to move into work, education or training.
