A group of young people in Cannock are celebrating this Christmas after graduating from their Prince’s Trust programme with Staffordshire Fire and Rescue.

“They might not have had support from elsewhere so we nurture them and push them out of their comfort zone.

Sian Osborne, Cannock 7 Team Leader

The 12 week personal development course gives 16 to 25 year olds – who are out of work or education – the chance to gain qualifications, work experience and practical skills through community projects and teamwork.

Cannock 7’s team leader Sian Osborne said: “The programme’s completely awe inspiring - if you ever attend a celebration event you will see how far the students come in 12 short weeks.

“They joined the programme shy, anxious and dealing with a lot of problems they’ve had in the past.

“They might not have had support from elsewhere so we nurture them and push them out of their comfort zone.

“They get to try so many new things they’d never get to do and it completely changes their lives – whether that sees them re-entering education, employment or even become more comfortable within themselves.”
