The Prince’s Trust

The Prince’s Trust and West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service share many common objectives which impact on communities we serve. Our work together is guided by the values of social responsibility and inclusiveness.

We’re proud to continue our partnership with The Prince’s Trust to deliver a 12-week personal development programme for young people.

If you’re aged 16 to 25-years-old and are not in education, employment or training, then you’re eligible to work on the programme which teaches skills for life and employment.

The course is a challenging mix of team building activities, a community project, work placement, and group work.

You’ll get to see first-hand the roles and responsibilities of the fire service and will work to improve community safety.

Breakfast, lunch and bus fares are all provided and the programme runs Monday to Friday 9.30am to 15.30pm. Our next programme starts on 23rd September 2019. Benefits will not be affected.

Individuals will gain new skills and qualifications, mix with new people and make new friends, get help with job-hunting and CV writing and most importantly a big boost to their confidence and a real sense of achievement.
