THE search is on to find young people from Halton for a 12-week life-changing programme.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service is recruiting their next Prince’s Trust team.

Sessions start on Monday, September 24, and offer the opportunity to learn new skills, complete qualifications and gain greater self confidence.

Trust project co-ordinator, Tamsen Cowen added: "This programme is designed to help develop young people's skills and confidence through practical community projects and work experience. The primary focus here is team work within the community which supports our local neighbourhoods.

"Experience shows us that 80 per cent of all graduates from the programme have gone on to achieve things as a result, this includes getting back into or going forward into education or gaining employment and training."

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service has had a long, strong and proud partnership with Prince's Trust for nearly 20 years and continue to see the benefits that arise from the work it does. The programme aims to move young people into full time employment and job related training.

Project manager, Lee Lapin, said: "The programme is all about helping young people meet their full potential so we are asking anyone between 16 to 25, who would like to gain qualifications, improve motivation, self confidence and be part of a Prince's Trust team, to get in touch."
