Volunteers : Prince's Trust Team

I am currently leading a Home Office project to encourage retired police officers to become involved in volunteering with organisations such as The Prince’s Trust. I was wondering if you could send the attached advert to your members locally in any newsletter/e-bulletin you circulate? There is a general ad on the NARPO website but I have found a more direct approach has yielded more interest – it is a really great opportunity for your members. If anyone is interested they can contact me directly for more information.

Are you a retired police officer, or about to retire? Are you interested in making a real and lasting difference to the lives of young people in your local community? If so, The Prince’s Trust has a range of volunteering opportunities available to you.
The Prince’s Trust work with 14 to 30-year-olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law. They give practical and financial support, developing key workplace skills such as confidence and motivation. The Prince’s Trust help 100 young people every day and more than three in four of them move into work, education or training.
Whether you have a few hours a month or are available full-time, there is a rewarding and challenging volunteering opportunity for you. If you can give:
 four hours every month you can mentor a young person and help them to progress in life
 one or two days a week you could help coordinate other volunteers to enable them to support young people
 20 days over a 12-week period you could support 15 young people as they progress through a personal development programme
Opportunities are available throughout Wales and England - from Bangor to Barry and Cornwall to Cumbria.
For more details please contact Zoe Byrne on or call 0207 543 1288.
