Since then, Kickstart, one of the schemes we have partnered, has employed 400 youngsters a day up and down the UK.

Among those back in a job is Forester Hirst, 24, who was a hotel entertainer.

Now, thanks to the Prince’s Trust, one of three back-to-work initiatives we are supporting, he has a job in a cafe.

Forester, from Guiseley, West Yorks, said last night: “It’s fantastic the Sun on Sunday is running this. I’m looking to the future.”
