The Prince’s Trust National Awards 2019
DDCAP had the priviledge of attending the National Prince’s Trust and TK Maxx & Homesense Awards at the London Palladium on Wednesday, 13 March. The annual event celebrates those who have worked with the Prince’s Trust on training programmes, community projects and establishing businesses.
Many of those who have joined the programme have been in care, struggled with mental health issues, have been in trouble with the law or have faced homelessness. These awards recognise young people who have overcome these odds and improved their chances in life by gaining new skills, while having a positive impact on their local community.
DDCAP would like to extend its congratulations to the achievements of these deserving winners.
Prince’s Trust Enterprise Challenge Regional Final
DDCAP were also delighted to attend the MOSAIC enterprise challenge semi-finals on Friday 22 March. The students who presented their ideas were committed, energetic and inspirational.
While Eden School, the school whose all-female team won last year’s overall challenge didn’t make it past this round, another all-female team from Mulberry School won and will be competing in the finals at Hogan Lovells in the Spring. This initiative is a good example of effective community engagement which has a high level of impact on both individuals and communities.
