HSBC’s commitment to The Prince’s Trust and supporting young people to re-engage with education, as well as securing a job, means every year thousands more young people are being helped to get their lives back on track.
There’s no doubt about it – HSBC is our largest corporate supporter. Since partnering with us in 2012, HSBC has donated over £18 million to the Trust.
The commitment and support from HSBC has been nothing short of transformational, enabling us to support thousands more young 13 to 25-year-olds back into education, training and work.
In 2015, HSBC announced a three year commitment to our Achieve programme, becoming the largest corporate supporter of the Trust’s education programme. With HSBC supporting the programme, over three years we will reach more than 4,000 of the most vulnerable young people and together improve educational underachievement, as well as employability skills.
As well as their commitment to improving educational outcomes for young people, HSBC is also one of our largest employability partners. Since 2014 HSBC has supported our Get into programme, an employability scheme to help jobless young people get back into work, and launched a bespoke HSBC Customer Services course – giving young people the opportunity to test out their skills in branches across the UK and gain valuable work experience.
But there’s more to our partnership than just money. Hundreds of HSBC employees have run money management and employability workshops to equip vulnerable young people with the skills and confidence they need to secure jobs.
