Prince's Trust

We are working closely with The Prince’s Trust to provide support to young people across the city.

Through two projects, Development Awards and Get Started, the aim is to help our young people successfully move into employment and training.

Development Awards

Development Awards are small cash grants which aim to remove financial barriers that prevent young people entering education, employment or training. Development Awards are targeted at disadvantaged young people aged 16-30 who live in Belfast, with an emphasis on the most deprived electoral wards in the city.  

We will be funding 200 Development Awards, to a value of between £200 and £250 per award. 

These awards will help the recipients address barriers to employment at a structural and personal level through the provision of financial support to move into positive destinations including: 

  • employment
  • education, and
  • training.

If you would like to find out more, and to apply please call 0800 842 842 or you can complete The Prince's Trust online application form.

Get Started

The Prince’s Trust Get Started programme is a personal and social development programme which uses inspiring themes, such as sport or the arts, to engage young people, aged 16-30 who face multiple barriers to employment and often lack the motivation and confidence needed to take their first step towards employment.

We will be supporting a total of 50 young people over the course of four programmes over the next six months. The aim is to help the young people involved to complete a one week course which includes: 

  • practical, hands on sessions related to the programme theme
  • group activities focusing on personal and social skills
  • one-to-one support to help each young person identify their next steps
  • relevant qualifications and accreditation.
