The Prince’s Trust – programmes in Tendring

Just a quick reminder of two programmes we are running in the Tendring area which start in the coming weeks.


The programmes are free and are open to young people age 16 – 25 who are not in full time education/employment and can attend on a Mon to Friday basis.  There are no geographical considerations – other than the young person being able to get to the venue each day.
