Last week I had the pleasure to visit our local Prince’s Trust Team Programme based in Trowbridge to learn about the impact this personal development and employability skills course has on young people in our community. The Prince’s Trust helped 59,000 young people last year and 78% moved into education, work or training after completing their course. After their fundraising event, I met with the local participants to discuss their ambitions, prior experiences and what matters most to them in our community. They came from all over Wiltshire to participate.
Next month I am sponsoring an event in Parliament for the Trust to help raise awareness of their excellent work.
