Sport and young people
The Prince's Trust believes that sport can
help young people develop skills such as confidence, teamwork,
communication and discipline, qualities which are also required in
the world of work.
The vital support of key organisations in football, rugby and
cricket has enabled The Trust to change over 20,000 young lives
through the power of sport. Click

Launched in 1997, The Prince's Trust Football Initiative, which
is funded by the Premier League and the Professional Footballers’
Association works with 65 professional football clubs and has
helped change more than 20,000 young lives.
Since 2003 The Trust has worked in partnership with 10 First
Class Counties and the Marylebone Cricket Club to support close to
2,500 young people to get their lives working.
Since 2005, more than 1,000 young people have been helped by The
Prince's Trust's RBS 6 Nations initiative.
In 2008 the British Horseracing Authority joined forces with The
Prince’s Trust to show young people the variety of opportunities
that exist within the sport.
