We’re delighted to announce that Utilita has become a Patron of The Prince’s Trust and will help the Trust to achieve its target of assisting one million young people over the next ten years.
The pioneering youth charity has been transforming lives for more than 40 years and its ideals and aspirations reflect many of the values we hold as a company and the community projects we already support, including through our football sponsorships.
It supports young people aged between 11 and 30, often from difficult backgrounds, to achieve brighter futures by helping them into jobs, education and training through a variety of programmes and activities. It aims to give them the confidence and skills to ‘live, learn and earn’ and play a full part in society.
Many of those it helps are in, or leaving, care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems or have been in trouble with the law. It also helps those with entrepreneurial aspirations to set up their own businesses.
The Trust values greatly the bespoke nature of its relationship with every one of its commercial supporters. It works collaboratively with each, channelling their particular strengths into achieving the greatest impact possible for its young people.
Utilita CEO, Bill Bullen, says: “I have long admired The Prince’s Trust for the work it does in helping young people turn their lives around. Its achievements over the 40 years or so since it was founded are exceptional and I am delighted that we have now become a Patron.
“I believe we can be good for each other as this will give the chance for colleagues to get involved with some of the Trust’s schemes and programmes designed to help young people and to raise further funds.”
The Trust has grown into one of the most effective and respected youth charities in the country, assisting more than 825,000 young people since it was founded. Prince Charles is still enthusiastically at its head and its achievements were a major part of a series of events to mark his 70th birthday.
Keep your eyes peeled for ways we will be supporting the Prince’s Trust and raising money for young people in need – watch this space!
