Princes Trust

The Prince’s Trust is a charity that believes in young people who often don’t believe in themselves. We seek out those young people that need our help the most and work with young people who struggle at school, are in or leaving care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law. We work with young people aged 14-30 to help them get back into work, education and training.

There are more than a million young people in the UK who are not in education, employment or training: these are the ones we aim to help. Each working day, The Prince’s Trust helps 100 more young people to start their journey towards a more successful future.

We address this by giving practical and financial support to the young people who need it most. We help develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling young people to move into work, education or training.

Xl clubs give 14-16 year olds who are at risk of truanting, exclusion and underachievement a say in their education. They aim to improve attendance, motivation and social skills.

Prince’s Trust programmes include accreditation opportunities but our experience is that, for the young people we support, accreditation is less important than engagement, confidence, life skills and personal development – these are prerequisites for achieving a formal qualification.

Cramlington Voluntary Youth Project deliver this programme to two alternative curriculum groups as alternative education.
