LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#customerengagement–Thunderhead, the leader in enterprise technology for customer

to help it use digital technology more effectively to engage with their
service users and assist them in achieving their goals. Founded in 1976

youth charity that helps 13 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed or
struggling at school to transform their lives. Thunderhead’s ONE

Prince’s Trust. “We are continually looking for ways to improve the way
we engage with our service users and help them achieve their goals. With
ONE, we can drive more appropriate, tailored and relevant placements to
the individual, in-line with their skills and preferences.”

Glen Manchester, Thunderhead CEO and founder and Trust Enterprise
Fellow, noted, “In 2016, The Prince’s Trust helped 59,000 young people
to turn their lives around. Digital technology plays a vital role in
engaging with young people and understanding their individual journeys
and needs. Being able to do this at scale is critical, and we’re very
proud to offer our ONE technology to support the service user community
and the work of The Trust.”

About The Prince’s Trust

Youth charity The Prince’s Trust helps disadvantaged young people to get
their lives on track. Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1976, this
year it is celebrating 40 years of supporting 13 to 30 year-olds who are
unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion.

Many of the young people helped by The Prince’s Trust are in or leaving
care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or
they have been in trouble with the law. The Trust’s programmes give
vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to
stabilize their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work.
Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into
work, education or training.

The Prince’s Trust has supported 825,000 young people in the last 40
years and this year it will support over 100 more each day.
