On Tuesday 13th October, actor and producer, Damian Lewis, best known for his appearances in Band of Brothers, Billions and Homeland, joined Simon Mayo to speak about his experiences as an Ambassador for The Prince’s Trust.

“To work with a charity that was targeting very specifically young people in this country, and grabbing them at the point where they might take a wrong turning, or might have just taken a wrong turning, but, it’s still an opportunity to steer them back on the right course, was brilliant.”

Lewis also spoke of Leon McGhie, who was awarded the Prince’s Trust Homesense Young Achiever award in 2019, who had his head turned through gang culture, and had been stabbed 5 times. “He approached the Prince’s Trust, took on their course which is called Team, not realising that the course was delivered by the MET police, and he turned his life around.”

No matter what their background, young people can achieve incredible things. Despite lives stifled by unemployment, homelessness, being in care or being in trouble with the law, young people can succeed with help. Without the right support, those from the most challenging backgrounds might never achieve their potential. The Prince’s Trust community gives vulnerable young people the chance to build a life for themselves and funds help to train, mentor and support them to build their skills and confidence.
