The money will be given as grants to former employees of printing companies or related markets such as graphic design, publishing, photography or journalism.
Previous recipients of help from the Prince's Trust include 24-year-old Ryan Austin from Beeston, who secured a place on the Trust's Enterprise Programme after being made redundant twice. A business loan and mentorship helped him found an exhibition stand business, Statement Exhibitions, which has six full-time employees.
"Without The Prince's Trust I would still be trying to find the support and funding I needed so I can’t thank them enough," says Austin. "I hope this funding will help other young people like me, who have a plan or an idea but need a bit of support to get them started."
Stephen Gilbert, chief executive of The Printing Charity, comments on the donation: "With so many young people out of work at the moment, we wanted to do something to help. Yorkshire has historically had strong links to the printing trade so it's an appropriate area for us to donate this money."
