Community Partnerships

At Portakabin we have a great history of supporting our local communities and we have established a number of partnerships and friendships over the years with a variety of charities, voluntary organisations and community groups.

Our support ranges from fundraising to volunteering and engaging with young people to make a positive difference to their lives. Supporting our local communities, specifically young people, is at the heart of our brand and we are constantly striving to achieve even more.


The Prince’s Trust

The Prince’s Trust is a UK-wide charity, helping disadvantaged young people to get their lives on track. It supports 11 to 30 year-olds who are struggling at school, at risk of exclusion as well as those who are unemployed. Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law.

Portakabin is proud to be a patron of the Prince’s Trust, the UK’s leading youth charity, helping disadvantaged young people to get their lives on track. We have a great history of supporting our local communities, from fundraising to volunteering and engaging with young people to make a positive difference. We are passionate about building a long term partnership that will make a significant difference to the lives of disadvantaged young people in the UK.
