When young people facing disadvantage told us what they want from employment support, they talked about changes to the whole system. It is clear that these young people need:
- holistic support that responds to their situation by taking their needs and strengths into account
- aligned services that work together to help them achieve their goals, rather than pulling in different directions
- connected services with effective communication and coordination across organisations and sectors so that they don’t have to navigate everything for themselves
- consistent support over time
We are looking for partnership bids that tackle this issue.
