Prince Harry to return to Nottingham – the second time in four months

Kensington Palace has announced that Prince Harry will be returning to the city of Nottingham, just four months after he last visited the home of Robin Hood.

The fifth-in-line to the throne will visit the city next Wednesday to see first hand the work of two Royal Foundation programmes.

One of the foundations he will visit is Full Effect, a Nottingham community project offering children and young adults inspiration and opportunities to raise their aspirations.

Based in St Ann’s, the project aims to identify and support young people from becoming involved in youth crime through methods including early intervention, mentorship, and training.

According to their website, “Full Effect is delivering a variety of projects to engage children and young people, offer skills and training and life opportunities.”

Whilst in the city, Prince Harry will also pay a visit to Core Coach, another project part of the Royal Foundation.apprenticeship scheme gives young people aged 16-24 the chance to become the next generation of inspirational sports coaches.

Core Coach offers apprenticeship scheme for young people aged 16-24, giving them the chance to become the next generation of inspirational sports coaches.

Prince Harry has had a lot of involvement with the project, having previously met apprentices in London at Lord’s Cricket Ground.

Prince Harry has said of the charity: “Since 2012 Coach Core has seen almost 100 apprentices trained in our pilot sites with 98% moving on into employment and/or education.

The goal is, and always will be to provide places of employment on the apprenticeship scheme, giving each individual the best chance once they graduate from Coach Core.

We want to be clear that Coach Core is not about elite sport – it is as much about the 14-year-olds who turn up at their local sports club to train every week as it is about finding the next Olympian or Paralympian – it is about extending the benefits and impact of sport to children and young people across the country.”

The Prince previously visited Nottingham in October 2016, where he opened the city’s new Central Police Station and visited local charities and organisations.
