Presentation event for Prince’s Trust Team

Date: 19th December, 2018

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service (DWFRS) recently held a ceremony to celebrate the achievements of young people completing the Prince’s Trust Team Programme.

Held at Hamworthy Community Fire Station on 13 December, the event enabled Megan Gisbourne, Scot Hayes, Ben Wright, Ellis Dimond and Liam Fuggle to present to guests what they had achieved over the previous 12 weeks and their hopes for the future.

Each participant received a Prince’s Trust Team completion certificate from the Lord Lieutenant of Dorset, Angus Campbell. They have also achieved the Employability, Teamwork and Community Skills Qualification and a Level 3 First Aid certificate.

Debbie Harvey, Prince’s Trust Team Leader for DWFRS, highlighted the achievements of the group since starting the programme in September: “Team 117 worked really hard to achieve their goals during this programme. Completing an adventure residential, carrying out a community project in partnership with Dorset Wildlife Trust, and giving Christmas presents to the children at Poole Hospital were just some of the activities the Team were involved with. It’s fantastic to see two of the young people gain employment as a result of their successful work experience placements, whilst other Team members have also gained education and employment opportunities for January. It’s been a pleasure working with them and we wish them all well for the future.”

During the presentation, Scot Hayes, one of the graduates on the course, said: “I loved every part of the course, especially the residential in Dartmoor where – as a team – we came out of our shells and personally I overcame challenges such as rock climbing and abseiling. During this course, I’ve realised I have improved a lot, especially my confidence, facing and overcoming my fears. I’m looking forward to starting a full time job as a carpet fitter in January, as well as continuing to improve my fitness so I can achieve my dream of becoming a firefighter in the future”.

The next Prince’s Trust Team programme starts on Monday 28 January and will be held at the Henry Brown Youth Centre in Bournemouth. If you are aged 16-25, are not in education, employment or training, and would like to gain skills and qualifications to help move you into work, please contact Debbie Harvey, Prince’s Trust Team Leader, on 07500 066134 or email [email protected]
