The Prince’s Trust is marking 10 years of supporting students at East Coast College, having worked with 30 teams and more than 30 community projects in the last decade.
The first Prince’s Trust group was launched at East Coast College’s Great Yarmouth campus in September 2011.
East Coast’s Prince’s Trust team came runners-up in the Trust’s National Awards 2021 in the Community Impact category.
Students completed a community project to explore the effects of Covid-19 on mental wellbeing and signpost young people to the local support available.
Their research included interviewing key workers, public sector leaders, youth support workers and Sir Lindsay Hoyle, Leader of the House of Commons.

Over the years the college has worked alongside a wide variety of organisations including local foodbanks, community groups, care homes, mental health charities, youth support, Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Preservation Trust and Great Yarmouth Community Trust.
