Celebrating the Coronation by Supporting Young People

May 02, 2023 // Franchising.com // King Charles III is a patron of more than 420 charities and started his own charity, The Prince’s Trust back in 1976. To date, it has helped a million young people between the ages of 11 to 30 to find the tools and confidence to try free courses, access training and mentorship and build careers.

The Prince’s Trust has made a considerable impact with many notable people and business leaders including actor Idris Elba having been helped by the charity. It was also the place that Denise Hutton-Gosney, Founder and Managing Director of Razzamataz Theatre Schools first turned to when she launched the theatre school franchise business back in 2000.

As we celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III, we look at the importance of continuing to support young people, and the role that Razzamataz is now playing within The Prince’s Trust.

“I grew up in a very modest two-bedroom flat just outside of Glasgow and for someone in my circumstances, it’s not expected that you will go on to run your own successful business,” says Denise. “For me and lots of others from similar backgrounds, you are just not used to people believing in you and supporting your ambitions. What I got most from The Prince’s Trust was the confidence that even though I didn’t have a university education, I could go on and achieve my dreams with the access to their advice, training and support. I’m very grateful to The Prince’s Trust and exceptionally proud to be one of its alumni.”

Denise feels so passionately about supporting young people that Razzamataz Theatre Schools is currently an Ambassador for The Prince’s Trust, with much of the work they do being so closely aligned to the work Razzamataz does for its more than 10,000 students across the UK.

“We are thrilled that Razzamataz are supporting The Prince’s Trust,” says Sharon Arbuckle, Senior Head of Corporate Partnerships at The Prince’s Trust. “It is a source of great pride to see a Prince’s Trust-supported business thrive and to now choose to give back to more young people. The support from Razzamataz will enable us to continue our work building the confidence and skills young people need to fulfil their potential.”

Razzamataz Theatre School was launched in 2000 and started franchising in 2007, gaining national attention after Denise appeared on BBC’s Dragons’ Den.

“Performing Arts is a life tool and stepping stone to a brighter future and at Razzamataz, we help children and young people unlock their potential by building their confidence and self-esteem to give them the courage to achieve whatever it is they want to do in life,” says Denise. “The Coronation of King Charles III is a reminder just how important it is to invest in young people and just what they can achieve with the right support.”

To continue to support young people, Razzamataz franchisees offer their students various ways in which they can build on their life chances such as scholarships in association with The Stage newspaper and the chance to audition for the company’s own charity called Future Fund, offering financial assistance for students going on to college or university.
