Hundreds of thousands of young people left school this summer with their education cut short and will really struggle to find their first job. Millions of young people who had only just started their working lives are finding their jobs and small businesses at risk. Britain’s economy is predicted to be severely affected with a detrimental effect on living standards worse than the 2008 financial crisis. We can expect that the impact will be felt disproportionally by young people.


We have been helping young people access education, training, employment and volunteering opportunities for over 40 years. In times of crisis, the most vulnerable in society become more vulnerable. Our youth support workers are a trusted person for hundreds of young people every day who need help to keep going. We connect young people to opportunities that lift them out of hardship. Young people have never needed more help than they do now to find their first job, reskill or access support.

  • " When the Coronavirus crisis hit, The Prince’s Trust helped me with my application for a full-time job at Royal Blackburn Hospital as a Health Care Assistant. I interviewed via telephone for safety reasons. I got a call about an hour later and was told that I was being offered the position."
