‘DDCAP GROUP BECOMES A PATRON OF THE PRINCE’S TRUST- MOSAIC PROGRAMME SUPPORTING DIVERSE YOUNG PEOPLE IN EDUCATION
DDCAP Group announced it has pledged £100,000 to The Prince’s Trust over the next 4 years to help disadvantaged young people gain new skills and confidence through Mosaic, The Trust’s in-school mentoring programme. The partnership will support young people to re-engage with education whilst exploring aspirational careers and receiving direct support from positive role models sourced from local communities.
Building on its support of Mosaic, DDCAP has also become a Patron of The Prince’s Trust in recognition of its commitment to fund The Prince’s Trust programmes. Importantly this partnership will see staff from across DDCAP’s team being trained as mentors and leading and participating in school workshop sessions. The opportunity for accomplished and experienced professionals to share their skills and guidance with diverse young people was one aspect of the participation in The Prince’s Trust which complements DDCAP Group’s culture and values.
“We have always believed we have a duty of care to the communities in which we operate,” said Stella Cox CBE, Managing Director of DDCAP Group. “We are delighted to become a Patron of The Prince’s Trust and support the important work they do with young people. Our growing London team looks forward to numerous volunteering opportunities to help young people set ambitious goals and achieve their full potential.”
The Prince’s Trust was founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1976 to promote social mobility and has returned £1.4 billion in value to society through its help for disadvantaged young people over the last ten years alone.
Tom Lamb, Senior Head of Business Development – Corporate Partnerships said ”We are immensely grateful to DDCAP for their generosity. We’re excited to work with the business in the UK, engaging staff in volunteering and mentoring and inspiring young people. Together, we are giving young people new skills and diverse points of reference in terms of role models and career options.”
