Helping The Prince’s Trust to change young people’s lives

The Prince’s Trust was founded in 1976 by Charles, Prince of Wales to help vulnerable young people get their lives on track.

It supports 11 to 30-year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion.

Last year The Prince’s Trust helped nearly 60,000 young people to get their lives back on track.

As it is an organisation that seeks to reach and help as many young people as possible, it is crucial for The Prince’s Trust it ensure its information and services are accessible to all young people.

The more young people it can reach, the more lives it can change.

Removing barriers

Part of this work to reach as many young people as possible involves providing a website that is accessible.

Rebecca Buchanan, Digital Marketing Manager, The Prince’s Trust, said: “The Prince’s Trust is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.”

“We are actively trying to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.”

Recite Me is crucial

Using recite Me on its website is a key part of The Prince’s Trust’s approach to web accessibility.

Rebecca added: “Recite Me makes our content more easy to use with reading and translation support.

“We have had Recite Me in place for a few years and just renewed our contract as it’s so important to us.

“It’s an essential part of our efforts to ensure the website conforms to web content accessibility standards.”
