Unity Trust Bank has formed a partnership with national charity, The Prince’s Trust, to help young people aged 11 to 30 gain the necessary skills to get into education, start a new job or access training.
As a socially minded business bank, Unity Trust Bank helps organisations to positively impact economical, social and environmental change. Unity selected The Prince’s Trust as a charity partner because of our shared values of social equality and inclusion.
Unity’s support is designed to help more young people to find jobs and get the training needed to build a better future for themselves and their communities.
Deborah Hazell, CEO of Unity Trust Bank said: ‘We are proud to support charities and organisations across the UK that make a real impact on local communities. As a team, we wanted to offer additional support to help The Prince’s Trust continue its important work, helping young adults to achieve their full potential. As part of our partnership, our staff will also be available to act as mentors and volunteers.”
Ben Marson is the Director of Partnerships at The Prince’s Trust. He commented: “We believe that every young person should have the chance to embrace exciting learning and career opportunities.
“Thanks to Unity Trust Bank, we can continue to support young people across the UK, no matter their background. With our support, they can access quality education, training and job opportunities and promote lifelong learning to all. We look forward to working together.”
The funding provided by Unity will support The Prince’s Trust to connect businesses with young people. This will provide a pipeline of new, diverse talent, while having a lasting impact on young people’s lives.
