Future Workforce Fund
Transforming young lives in Greater Manchester

At The Prince’s Trust, we believe that every young person in Greater Manchester should have the chance to embrace exciting opportunities.

We are working in partnership with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) to deliver a Department for Education funded skills pilot, the Future Workforce Fund, which will transform the lives of thousands of young people across Greater Manchester.

We know that the effects of short and long-term unemployment will be significant for younger generations, so protecting the future of young people across Greater Manchester is absolutely critical, ensuring they have hope and optimism for the future. We have developed a range of courses and tailored support to provide vulnerable young people with the practical and financial support needed to stabilise their lives, develop self-esteem and confidence, and gain valuable skills for work.

We’re working closely with GMCA, employers and other key partners in the region to pilot new and innovative ways of supporting young people to achieve their goals and fulfil their potential. Future Workforce Fund plays a significant role in our ability to support the emerging needs of young people, and provide a flexible, adaptive offer that will directly support the Greater Manchester Young Person’s Guarantee.

We are proud to be working in partnership with GMCA to do things differently and help young people in the region take their next steps towards building sustainable futures.

Helping young people cope today and prepare for tomorrow

Like many charities, the current Coronavirus pandemic has impacted our organisation. Young people in Greater Manchester need us more than ever and we’re committed to providing the support they need to navigate this challenging time.

Together, we can provide vital support to help young people keep their lives on track.
