Fairbridge, Social Development Programme

Princes Trust


We at the Prince’s Trust are excited to announce the re-structure of our flagship personal
and social development programme, Fairbridge. We’ve kept a lot of what people know and
love about it (the outdoor activities, residential trip and one to one support), but we’ve also
added a lot to it, including additional themes and specific follow on days throughout to
support independence and development as well as a celebration event to help consolidate
learning and reflect on young people’s achievements on completion.
