Young people

Empowering the next generation

We understand that young people suffer higher levels of unemployment than the general population – and we are dedicated to making a difference.

Being unemployed when you are young can mean losing out on training and vital employment skills, causing damage to long-term job prospects.

This can then put additional pressure on families and adversely affect mental wellbeing. Widespread youth unemployment can lead to a ‘lost generation’ that is socially excluded, trapped in poverty and disengaged from the wider community.
