The Police Service and The Trust
The majority of police forces in the UK
support The Prince’s Trust by seconding officers and staff to help
Why is the police service involved?
The police and The Trust share common objectives of engaging
with the hardest to reach young people and diverting them away from
crime and anti-social behaviour. The Prince’s Trust is the largest
UK youth charity and their programmes have a proven track record of
helping young people into employment, education and training and
therefore away from crime.
The partnership also improves confidence of young people in the
police and promotes positive relationships between officers and
young people in their local communities. For the officers and staff
involved, a secondment provides a unique development opportunity
and a challenging but incredibly rewarding experience.
Why is The Trust involved?
The Prince’s Trust is committed to working in partnership with
the police as well as the other uniformed services. The Trust value
the commitment, motivation and skills that police officers and
staff add to their programmes and know they are excellent role
models for young people.
I am very clear that this type of partnership –
between the police, local authority and the voluntary sector –
provides a really powerful basis for developing programmes to
