A partnership between City Bridge Trust and The Prince’s Trust has supported over 5,000 young Londoners in gaining the skills needed to move into jobs, education, or training.

Over the last three years The Prince’s Trust has helped thousands of young people in London to live, learn and earn through £3m of funding from the capital’s largest independent funder, City Bridge Trust.

The funding is part of a 10-year partnership which supports The Prince’s Trust’s main programmes supporting Londoners, all of which provide essential support to young people facing the biggest barriers to education or employment, to move on successfully with their lives and build a brighter future.

The partnership is tackling youth unemployment in the capital, improving social mobility and supporting marginalised young people, such as those who are homeless.

City Bridge Trust, the City of London Corporation’s charitable funder, has also enabled The Prince’s Trust’s London programmes to scale up and support more young people than ever.

Alison Gowman, Chairman of the City of London Corporation’s City Bridge Trust Committee, said:

"The London programmes have had some fantastic results in the last three years, supporting young people from some of the most socially deprived areas in the capital into education and employment. Our funding has also helped many homeless people to find the right support and advice to transform their lives.

"Supporting young people is at the heart of City Bridge Trust’s work. Our work with The Prince’s Trust will benefit thousands more young Londoners in the years to come."
