Our Charity Partner

We are very proud to announce that the 2018 Real IT Awards will be supporting the Prince's Trust.

About the Prince's Trust

Youth charity The Prince’s Trust is a champion of young people. They create opportunities for vulnerable young people to thrive and support them to build their skills and confidence. It enables youngsters to take responsibility for their lives and work towards a future they can be proud of.

To do this, the Prince's Trust supports 11 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school or being excluded. Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or they have been in trouble with the law.

The Trust’s programmes give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilise their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work. However, each year, The Prince’s Trust needs to raise over £1 million a week from individuals, companies and government to continue its vital work.

Through hard work, determination and belief, young people succeed with our support as three in four young people helped by The Prince’s Trust move into work, training, education or volunteering.

The Trust was founded by HRH The Prince of Wales over 40 years ago, the charity has helped more than 870,000 young people since 1976 and supports 100 more each day.
