Young people on Prince’s Trust Team programme presented with certificates


Date: 19th December, 2017

A presentation was held last week to celebrate the achievements of a group of young people who have completed the Prince’s Trust Team programme.

The scheme is organised by Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, and the latest programme ran for 12 weeks from September. During this time, the young people completed the Employability, Teamwork and Community Skills qualification awarded by the Prince’s Trust, as well as first aid and volunteering certificates.

The celebration event was held at Kinson Community Centre in Bournemouth on 14 December, and each of the young people had the opportunity to tell the audience what they had achieved and their hopes for the future. They were then presented with their Prince’s Trust Team completion certificate by Kate Adie OBE, Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Dorset, watched by Chief Fire Officer Ben Ansell and other invited guests.

Debbie Wynn, Prince’s Trust Team Leader for Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, highlighted the achievements of the group since starting the programme in September and said: “We are extremely proud of this group of young people. They have been enthusiastic from day one and taken on every challenge that has been put in front of them.”

The next Team programme, for young people aged 16 to 25 who are not in education, employment or training, will start on Monday 22 January 2018 and will be delivered from Hamworthy Fire Station.

Places for this upcoming course are already being filled so, if you would like to register an interest or would like more information, please contact Debbie Wynn, Prince’s Trust Team Leader, on 07500 066134 or email [email protected]
