#WorkItOut seeks to help disadvantaged young people (aged 16 – 25 years old) start their journey into employment, training or education through support from businesses and other organisations. The project is funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
Our aim is to enhance opportunities for young people who face barriers and deliver programmes based on flexible support. We offer focus group sessions in health and wellbeing, employability, resilience, confidence and financial support. Ultimately raising the aspirations of the young people, providing opportunities that may not regularly be open to those participating.
This project will provide businesses an opportunity to support the young people on their journey to employment, education and training. Businesses can get involved in a variety of ways, such as; hosting an inspiration day or work placement, participate in a team challenge, as well as the option to become a mentor and positive role model.
