Backing Youth Ambition

Backing Youth Ambition is a unique partnership between The Prince’s Trust and LDC to support over 1,200 young entrepreneurs across the UK over the next three years.

We recognise that young people interested in business and entrepreneurship are critical to the future of the UK economy and in turn our future success, which is why we are partnering with The Prince’s Trust to extend our commitment to backing ambition to young people.


Supporting The Prince’s Trust Enterprise Programme

The initiative aims to help young people explore and launch their own businesses through start-up grants and additional funding for The Prince’s Trust’s Enterprise Programme.

We’re also providing practical support through volunteering, training and mentoring activity across our regional offices, uniting our employees, portfolio companies and business networks behind our vision to create a thriving youth enterprise economy and a more prosperous future.

The three-year partnership forms part of our wider commitment to backing the ambitions of UK businesses and Lloyds Banking Group’s commitment to helping Britain prosper.

“Young entrepreneurs are essential to a thriving economy. Our unique partnership with The Prince’s Trust aims to show ambitious young people that financial and practical support is out there to give them the confidence to start their own business.”

Martin Draper, CEO, LDC
