We work with public sector partners to improve the lives of young people and their communities across the UK.

Public sector partnerships are central to how we operate

We work with local authorities, central government departments, devolved administrations, European agencies and a variety of other statutory and Lottery partners to deliver services that changes the lives of disadvantaged young people.

We also work with commissioners and bidding organisations to address social value requirements.

We are proud of the network of partners and supporters that fund us to deliver the right opportunities for young people across the UK. Read more about the programmes we deliver here.

We work hard to develop lasting partnerships with employers, education providers and training providers in local communities, and by working to an outcomes-based approach we are able to change young people's lives while contributing to statutory targets.

In a tight funding environment The Prince's Trust is committed to providing value for money. Where possible we bring match-funding and in-kind support to programme delivery while still ensuring the best possible outcomes.

Work with us to:

  • Get young people into work, education or training
  • Increase educational achievement and prevent school exclusion
  • Promote and sustain new enterprise
  • Build stronger, successful communities
  • Tackle anti-social behaviour and youth crime
  • Tackle social inequality and exclusion
  • Improve young people's health and wellbeing
  • Improve young people's skills through personal development and confidence-building activities
  • Address social value procurement and bidding requirements.

We deliver programmes and services across many sectors, with a focus on public agendas including Troubled Families, economic regeneration, pre-apprenticeships and training, care and leaving care, health and wellbeing, educational exclusion and long-term NEET young people.

Because of the breadth of our work we are able to provide young people with access to opportunities that are suitable - and, above all, sustainable.

National charity, local roots

The number of young people supported by The Prince's Trust has increased substantially in the past few years. Last year we supported over 58,000 young people through core and pilot programmes, with three in four finishing with a positive outcome in education, employment or training.

While we're proud of our growth, we remain focused on reaching out to local communities and working intensively to empower young people to make the most of themselves. Find out who supports us to deliver change across the UK:
