The Prince of Wales and The Duke of Sussex attend an event to discuss youth violent crime

The Prince of Wales and The Duke of Sussex today joined a discussion about youth violent crime, convened by The Prince’s Trust.

The discussion took place at Clarence House and was part of the Trust’s work to help disadvantaged and vulnerable young people. It brought together Prince’s Trust Ambassadors; families of victims of youth violent crime; community groups and practitioners.

The Prince of Wales established The Prince’s Trust in 1976 following social unrest and high levels of youth unemployment.

The discussion covered topics including using social media to amplify inspiring voices, how relevant role models can influence behaviour, how can young people be engaged in alternative activities and giving young people a greater stake in the economy and society.
