Support our response to Covid-19

 Together, we can be there for young people in this time of crisis

Get Skilled, Get Creative and Get Active with our new challenge

Looking for fundraising inspiration?

Will you be there for young people in their time of need?

Our army of youth support workers are doing everything they can to  ensure young people are supported - whether it is delivering some of our courses online, working with young people to find local opportunities or running our Live Chat feature 7 days a week. No matter what, we will be there for young people. But in these anxious and uncertain times we need the help of our Prince’s Trust community as well. Small actions can make a big difference to help young people at this time so whether it's signposting young people to our coronavirus support hub, sharing our Relief Fund on social media, or taking on a challenge to fundraise for us we need you.

Find out how you can support our response to Covid-19 here.

#GetCreative

We have teamed up with Fearne Cotton's Happy Place to launch The Great Create, proudly supported by STAEDTLER, to boost the wellbeing of young people in the UK. Whether you're looking for home-based activities to keep your household entertained or ways to stay connected to your colleagues, family and friends while everyone stays indoors, The Great Create can help you to bring your favourite people together, online and at home.
Join our Facebook group for access to exclusive content and to share your creations with our #GetCreative community.

We've got loads of step-by-step guides and how-to videos to help you along, as well as tips for how to connect friends and family online if they can't be there in person.

#GetSkilled

We’re supporting our young people to ensure they continue to learn new skills, grow in confidence and prepare for the future during this time. We challenge you to use your time at home to #GetSkilled. Whether it’s a 30-day challenge, or a quick upskill – the possibilities are endless and we can all learn from each other.

Show us, and The Prince’s Trust community your new skills on Instagram by tagging us @PrincesTrust  #GetSkilled #StartSomething. Get your friends and family involved and set up a JustGiving page to raise funds that will help us give young people the skills they need to succeed.

Here’s some inspiration on how you could #GetSkilled

  • Learn a language, learn to paint or learn to play an instrument
  • Improve your cooking skills – why not host an online lunchtime cooking class. 
  • Take up a hobby that helps you switch off and relax like meditation or origami – could you lead your friends and family in a class?
  • New to working from home? Upskill your colleagues in Zoom, MS Teams or Excel and help them #GetSkilled for a donation to The Prince’s Trust
  • Looking to get some fresh air. Why not take part in a green fingers challenge and get skilled in gardening – sow your seeds at the same time as your friends and see whose grows the quickest

#GetActive

It's important to keep moving and active. So why not set yourself a new challenge you can take part in at home. Join an online workout, improve your strength by taking part in a daily squat or plank challenge, or learn a new skill virtually like ballroom dancing!
Here are a few creative examples of how people are staying active at home and getting their friends, family and colleagues involved.

  • Regularly attend yoga, Zumba or fitness classes? Why not host your own class online and get your networks active at the same time. We have seen some fantastic pictures of our own colleagues wearing fancy dress on Skype to work out together
  • Challenge your friends to a plank challenge and get the six-pack you’ve always wanted
  • Fancy climbing Mount Everest to raise money for The Prince’s Trust. If you have stairs at home, it’s only 58,070 stairs… better get started
  • Do your kids have a trampoline - why not do a sponsored jump? Set up a live stream so we can all check in on how you’re doing
  • Have a static bike at home…you could cycle the distance to all of your UK offices whilst at home and ask them to donate when you arrive (virtually, of course)
  • Host a virtual dance party, it’s great exercise and much cheaper than going out on a Friday night
