Opening up the world of work
Our person-centred Employability Programme is helping to address youth unemployment in the region through a creative, responsive, and highly strategic approach. We target young people with multiple barriers who are 12 months or more NEET (not in education employment or training), providing multiple bespoke interventions through seamless mentor support.
These Intensive Mentors act as the golden thread, keeping individuals on track through embedded wraparound support. It’s a programme that changes lives, and has become an exemplar model for employability programmes nationwide.
Your Way is a bespoke pathway created and delivered by specialist LDD mentors to bridge the gap for young people who require additional support due to a physical disability, learning disability, learning difficulty or a long-term health condition.
Access to a Young Peoples’ food bank and mentors specialising in neurodivergence and marginalised communities are also made available through targeted outreach.
