Delivering solutions for young people and their communities

Across the UK, The Prince’s Trust works closely with national and local government, statutory agencies and lottery partners to deliver effective solutions for young people and their communities.

As the UK’s leading youth charity we have extensive experience of working with disadvantaged and vulnerable young people. We deliver a range of programmes, which can be tailored to meet local need, and are proven at securing sustainable outcomes. Our work helps to:

  • Get young people in work, education and training
  • Increase educational achievement and prevent school exclusion
  • Promote and sustain new enterprise
  • Build stronger, successful communities
  • Tackle anti-social behaviour and youth crime
  • Improve young people’s health and wellbeing

Last year we worked with nearly 70 Local Authorities, across 7 central government departments, with 3 European agencies, alongside all the devolved administrations, and with a variety of other statutory and lottery partners to deliver over £13m of services to change the lives of disadvantaged young people.

In a tight funding environment, The Prince’s Trust is committed to providing value for money – where possible we look to bring match funding and in-kind support to programme delivery, whilst still ensuring the best possible outcomes.

Matrix StandardMatrix Standard

In July 2009 The Prince’s Trust achieved UK wide matrix Standard accreditation. The Matrix Standard is a well recognised external quality mark that assesses the information, advice and guidance we provide to young people. The process involved interviewing a mix of staff, volunteers and young people.

It was gained in a very convincing manner, reaffirming the good quality of the Trust’s work and supporting future fundraising efforts. The Assessor’s comments included being struck by "the desire and enthusiasm to provide young people with a service tailored to the individual’s needs, the strong operational relationships with delivery partners, positive communication between and with staff”. It has also helped The Trust identify opportunities for improvement.
