Prince’s Trust (United Kingdom)
Three years ago, the Saint-Gobain Foundation allocated €140,000 to the British Prince’s Trust, which helps young people suffering extreme hardship (homelessness, addiction, behavioral problems, etc.) aged between 16 and 24, to get back into the workforce. The funds were used to renovate the Prince’s Trust Wolfson Centre in Glasgow. The new center aims to become the local reference agency for young people providing them with education, housing assistance, and help finding a job.
Supported by its sponsor Richard Halderthay, the project also included a significant focus on energy efficiency and received support from several of the Group’s brands (British Gypsum, Weber, Graham and Jewson).
