Securing your first job can feel impossible for anyone. Disrupted education, mental health challenges, and acute financial pressures all prevent unhoused young people from accessing meaningful education, employment and training opportunities.
Our Employability Fund provides young people with specialist coaches to help them become job-ready. Whatever their stage on the journey to employability – whether learning to read and write or preparing for an interview – our objective is to help them take meaningful steps towards long-term employment, so they can live independent, happy lives.
An Employability Boost underpins the Employability Fund. The Boost helps young people overcome the costs associated with getting into work and education.
Whether a young person needs help with course fees or the bus fare to a job interview, we make sure small financial barriers don’t prevent young people from securing long-term independence.
