Golden Tours is proud to announce that we are working in association with The Prince’s Trust with regards to our new Hop On Hop Off bus tours. The Prince’s Trust helps change young lives. It gives practical and financial support, developing key workplace skills such as confidence and motivation. It works with 13-30 year olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law. For more information, please go to princes-trust.org.uk.
The Prince’s Trust was founded in 1976 by The Prince of Wales, after he served in the Royal Navy. His Royal Highness became devoted to improving the lives of underprivileged young people in the UK, and began The Trust to deliver on that commitment.
The Trust continues to expand with new initiatives and events, changing the lives of thousands upon thousands of young people every year.
Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10 million a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1 billion every year. The Prince’s Trust address this by giving practical and financial support to the young people who need it most. They help develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling young people to move into work, education or training. They run programmes that encourage young people to take responsibility for themselves:
To continue this vital work they need to raise £40 million this year. They rely upon generous giving and fundraising from a huge variety of people.
