Rise logo

RISE is a network of young adults aged between 21 to 45 who are passionate about social mobility.

This group aims to help disadvantaged young people across the UK by:

  • Raising funds
  • Influencing networks
  • Shouting about our work and 
  • Empowering young people, no matter their background.

This is a community where young ambition thrives.

Today, there are 800,000 young people in the UK who are not currently in education, training or employment (NEET).

These are young people who have not been given the opportunity to RISE; who haven’t been nurtured by mentors and teachers; who haven’t been shown that success is within their reach and something worth fighting for.

In this time of unrest and upheaval, The Prince’s Trust offers support and stability to young people who need it the most. Many of these young people face complex needs which can include mental health challenges, offending backgrounds or homelessness.

As a leading youth charity, The Trust works with NEET young people and those struggling at school to develop the confidence and skills to live, learn and earn.

The campaign: RISE 

RISE is The Prince’s Trust’s young philanthropy campaign. This is a group of young professionals aged between 21 to 45 who are committed to transforming the lives of others and creating social change.

Through innovative partnerships and creative collaborations, our goal is to raise £5 million to help 5,000 young people across the UK build a brighter future. RISE supports young ambition to thrive – from the young people we work with to the young entrepreneurs and business leaders who make this initiative possible.

We want to help young people who have not been given the opportunity to RISE.

If you are passionate about supporting young people, join the RISE movement. Whether donating, fundraising, or spreading our message, our goal is to give every young person the positive opportunities they deserve, because the higher they rise, the smaller the gap between a hopeful dream and a deserved reality.

Ways to get involved

You would be a key member of our RISE network. You would get the opportunity to receive our quarterly updates, attend regular meetings as well as invites to special events.

Lead and grow the RISE network through donating or raising funds, and raising awareness of our cause. You will be a key decision maker and use your unique skills and passion to inspire others to get involved.

A highly-valued donor of The Trust, you would gain access to both RISE and exclusive Prince’s Trust Patron-only events. You would receive annual reports demonstrating the impact of your gift and regular opportunities to visit our programmes and young people. You would also be acknowledged on our Patrons plaque in Head Office as well as on our website.

Your support is pivotal. It’s the difference between a young person feeling hopeless, to a young person realising they can shape their own future, and gaining the confidence, tenacity and resilience to RISE.
