About Inner Flame

Inner Flame is a youth charity based in Swindon, Wiltshire.

We offer free training programmes to develop confidence, self-belief, life-skills, and employability in 13-25 year olds. We help them to overcome whatever barriers are stopping them from realising their potential.

We believe that:

  • Each of us has a driving need to do something meaningful with our life
  • Every young person has something to contribute, and
  • We all benefit when this potential is realised

Founded in 2008, we are perhaps best-known for delivering the 12-week Prince’s Trust Team Programme which offers a nationally recognised qualification, while providing opportunities for personal growth, such as the residential week away and the two-week supported work placement.

As well as working with 16-25s who aren’t in education, employment or training, we also help young people who are struggling with anxiety or other mental health issues.

We work mainly on attitude and mindset; these can’t aren’t “taught”. Our participants learn by challenging themselves in a supportive environment. 


Our data shows that we are having a significant impact on the young people that we work with. Below is a selection from of our 2019 Impact Monitoring Data, which is compiled using self-assessment data gathered from our students both at the start and end of the Prince’s Trust Team Programme.
