The Prince’s Trust awarded HMRC Gold Patron status for its work with young people.
The youth charity thanked HMRC at Westminster Hall Library in Central Hall, for two decades of working with The Trust to help change disadvantaged young people’s lives.
The award celebrated the achievements of disadvantaged young people supported by HMRC and The Trust, who had improved their chances in life and had a positive impact on their local community.
Lin Homer, HMRC’s Chief Executive, said:
I’m pleased to receive the Gold Patron Award today on behalf of HMRC staff who have helped support the Prince’s Trust. I believe it’s important for organisations and businesses to invest in these initiatives, and HMRC looks forward to continue working with The Trust and supporting their tremendous efforts to successfully transform the lives of many disadvantaged young people.
Martina Milburn, The Prince’s Trust Chief Executive, said:
Over the past 19 years, more than 2,500 HMRC staff have engaged with The Trust, and the young people we support, to their mutual benefit. Their contributions have positively influenced the lives of around 35,000 vulnerable young people, helping them regain their confidence, learn new skills, get jobs, start businesses and take the first step to a more positive future.
