The Fire Service and The Trust
The Fire Service and The Prince's Trust have
worked together since 1992 igniting potential in young people.
Since 1992, many Fire and Rescue Services have
benefited from their work with The Prince’s Trust. Currently 18
services directly deliver nearly 20% of all the Team programmes in the UK. An even greater number
support and work in partnership with The Trust on other programmes,
such as xl, Enterprise, Get
Started, Get Into and the Fairbridge programme.
Peter Holland CBE OStJ QFSM
Chief Fire & Rescue Adviser
"These Fire and Rescue Services are seeing the
real benefits to their own staff’s development, their communities
and partnerships. Also a shared vision means better outcomes.
Working together in the community is important and it enables the
Fire & Rescue Service not only to meet their own targets but
also contribute to other community agendas such as improving
health, educational underachievement, worklessness, reducing crime
and anti social behaviour.
Above all they are helping young people make their communities
