Employees of family-owned The Denholm Group are partnering The Prince’s Trust to help create lasting change for young people.

Glasgow-headquartered The Denholm Group, with businesses in shipping, logistics, seafood and industrial services, has confirmed its commitment to supporting young people by becoming a patron of young people’s charity The Prince’s Trust.

The company is encouraging its employees to take part in fundraising and volunteering activities to support the trust’s work of creating brighter futures for young people, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

“Our partnership with The Prince’s Trust marks the first time Denholm has nominated a group-wide charity partner,” said John Denholm, chairman and ceo of The Denholm Group.

“The group currently supports a number of young people through apprenticeships, which combine work experience or on-the-job training with studying towards a formal qualification. Our partnership with The Prince’s Trust is the natural next step in supporting many more young people by helping them to build their confidence and gain the skills they need to thrive in the world of work,” Denholm said.

Kate Still, director of The Prince’s Trust Scotland, commented: “It is essential that we do everything we can to ensure young people have an increasing stake in our economy and society. We do this by improving their confidence, boosting their skills and ensuring they have the knowledge of potential career paths. The private sector plays a key role in offering young people in our country real opportunities so they can live, learn and earn.”
