EVERYYOUTH EMPLOYED

Securing your first job can feel impossible for anyone. Disrupted education, mental health challenges, and acute financial pressures can make it even harder. Unfortunately the mainstream help available is not flexible or patient enough for our young people.

That’s why we launched EveryYouth Employed, providing young people facing homelessness with specialist coaches to become job-ready and a bursary scheme to overcome the costs associated with getting into work or 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.

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.

FUTURE BUILDERS

The purpose of our Future Builders programme is to make affordable accommodation available to young people participating in education, employment and training opportunities. This enables young people to take the first step towards their future without worrying about the impact on their benefit allowance.

Future Builders breaks the cycle of homelessness through collaboration. We work with local authorities, housing associations, and private landlords to acquire the long-term use of neglected properties.

The properties are renovated, with costs kept to a minimum by brokering gifts-in-kind from businesses and pro bono support from professional services firms.
