New centre for youth charity

Youth charity The Prince’s Trust has opened a new centre in Cardiff which will provide improved facilities for young people who are struggling to get their lives back on track.
The Prince’s Trust supports young people aged 13 – 30 who may be from disadvantaged or vulnerable backgrounds, giving them practical support to help them overcome their barriers and develop the confidence and self-esteem to find a job.

Alan Kennedy, Acting Director of The Prince’s Trust Cymru, said: “These are great facilities and will allow our staff to support young people in Wales in a more focused and effective way.”

The new centre brings together operations from three former offices, including the former Fairbridge centre, now part of The Prince’s Trust, and the former office in Porth. As well as improved office space, the centre has extensive facilities to deliver its programmes under one roof.

Andrew Creighton, Director of Charnwood Estates said: “We are delighted to have secured such a high quality Tenant for our building, We worked very closely with the Prince’s Trust Cymru to design the internal lay-out  which has been tailored to suit the Charity’s present and future needs”.

Jenkins Best and Savills acted for Charnwood, Henry Best, Director of Jenkins Best, added; “Ocean Park continues to attract high quality occupiers, with excellent connectivity and its close proximity to both the City Centre and Cardiff Bay”.

Acquiring agent for the Princes Trust, Rhydian Morris, Director of Jones Lang LaSalle, commented: “My client considered various properties in the Cardiff area and 16A Ocean Way provides the ideal property solution, particularly following the bespoke refurbishment carried out by Charnwood”.

The Prince’s Trust supports 3,800 young people in Wales each year through its programmes. Three in four young people supported by The Trust move into work, education or training. Its range of programmes help young people who are facing issues such as unemployment, homelessness, and mental health. Others may be leaving care, struggling at school or have been in trouble with the law.

Charnwood is a leading South Wales commercial property developer based in Cardiff. The Princes Trust Cymru letting follows other recent deals including the construction of South Wales Headquarters for the NSPCC and Cardiff Community Housing Association.
