Prince's Trust seeks Isle of Man volunteers

The Prince's Trust in the Isle of Man has said it is looking to recruit "community-spirited" volunteers to help disadvantaged young people.

The Prince's Trust on the island runs programmes for 16 to 25-year-olds who face a range of difficulties.

One of the main areas of support is the Development Award scheme, which provides grants of up to £500.

This goes to help people buy interview clothes, materials and tools for work or to meet training and travel costs.

Chairman Robin James said: "People from all backgrounds and walks of life are urged to get in touch."

He added: "As well as assisting others, volunteering with the Prince's Trust can be personally rewarding in terms of meeting new people and gaining hands-on experience of working in the third sector."
