The Prince’s Trust

The Prince’s Trust was founded in 1976, when His Majesty King Charles III (previously His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales) noticed young people in the UK were not receiving adequate help and support to move into education, employment or training. To date, The Prince’s Trust has helped one million young people find the tools and confidence to achieve their dreams.

Our projects with The Trust enables Leeds City College to support health and social care, provide access to the STEM industry, and equip young people in Leeds with skills and employment.
