The Prince's Trust launches Young People Relief Fund

Princes Trust logoTechMarketView has a long association with The Prince’s Trust, which began in 2002 when our Chairman Richard Holway became a founding member of the Trust’s Technology Leadership Group. We’re proud that that involvement has continued to the present day with our Managing Director, Tola Sargeant, now being part of the TLG.

We have been very impressed by the way the Trust is rapidly changing the way it works in light of the COVID-19 pandemic with digital and tech solutions playing a key part.  It has launched the Youth Action Plan, innovating across areas from online mentoring to educational and community support, so that every young person has somewhere to turn to during this difficult time.

In the coming period, the Prince’s Trust knows that it will see an increase in demand for its youth support services, which are rapidly adapting to the new circumstances. At the same time, COVID-19 will bring considerable financial risk to the charity, which relies heavily on philanthropy, corporate and government grants, and will inevitably lose vital income streams. However, the young people of our nation have never needed the Trust’s help more than they do now. 

How you can help

The Prince’s Trust is asking for our help and has launched The Young People Relief Fund to ensure that it can adapt to give young people the support they need during this unprecedented time, and beyond. Their plans include major employability growth across health and social care, employability skills support from an early age and digital upskilling for the future age. 

By donating to the Young People Relief Fund you will: 

·     Give the most vulnerable young people the support they need to cope day-to-day in this anxious and uncertain time in the UK’s history. 

·     Help young people who are missing school, are excluded from the workplace or experiencing redundancy to engage in education or get back into a job. 

·     Help re-skill the young for jobs in sectors such as healthcare.
