Our partnership with it aims to support 25 young people through its Fairbridge programme, a challenging personal-development course, providing one-to-one support for participants at Prince's Trust centres in some of the UK's most deprived areas. Like Benedict, he recognizes the limits of an impoverished understanding of charity—what he terms “charity à la carte,” “an accumulation of small personal gestures to individuals in need [180]”—while also maintaining charity’s priority in its relation with justice.
