NatWest has donated to the Prince’s Trust since 1976 and been partnered formally with the Prince’s Trust for over twenty years.
Since 2009, NatWest has helped fund almost seven and a half thousand young people to take part in the “Enterprise” programme.
The Enterprise Relief Fund was an emergency fund set up by your Trust and NatWest during the pandemic in 2020. The fund provided emergency grants to young people under thirty who were self-employed and ran a business but did not qualify for government support. A total of £3.7 million in grants were awarded. An additional 351 young people have received a grant funded by NatWest through the “Enterprise” programme.
In the past three years, 754 NatWest staff have volunteered with the Trust, supporting over 2,618 young people across a number of programmes including “Enterprise”, “Team” and “Achieve”.
