Prince Harry to visit Nottingham

Published 21 October 2016

Prince Harry is set to visit Nottingham to spend a day focusing on youth initiatives and supporting local communities.

On Wednesday 26 October, Prince Harry will re-visit Coach Core and The Full Effect, youth projects which are supported by The Royal Foundation.

The day will begin with a visit to Nottingham's new police station where Prince Harry will open the premises and tour the building.

He will meet the neighbourhood policing and Nottingham City Council teams who have joined forces to run operations from the station. And he will meet young apprentices who are gaining experience around the new initiative.

A visit to the National Ice Centre will see Prince Harry find out more about Nottingham's Coach Core sporting apprenticeships – which provide young people, aged 16-24, with the skills to train as sports coaches.

Coach Core was launched as a pilot in London in 2012 and in Glasgow in 2014. It has now expanded and works with 42 partners around the UK in providing education, training or employment to young people. 

Alongside the National Ice Centre, other Nottingham Coach Core partners include Nottingham Forest FC, Notts County FC, Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club, Nottingham Rugby and local charity Epic Partners.

On his one-day tour Prince Harry will then visit Full Effect, a community recording studio which aims to reduce youth violence and improve opportunities for young people in the city.

His Royal Highness visited the project in 2013 and directed The Royal Foundation (set up by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry) to launch a new initiative to train youth leaders, providing them with formal qualifications and apprenticeships in mentoring and leadership.

At the same time the scheme supports primary school children, who are at most risk of becoming involved in youth violence.

Prince Harry will then see rehearsals for Full Effect initiative "Hip Hopera" - a project which engages young people through music.
