Skills & Employability
A good job gives you status, focus and purpose and is fundamental to your physical and emotional health. In fact, it often defines who you are as a person and how you’re seen by others.
Unfortunately, young people from disadvantaged backgrounds often miss out on the skills that are
essential to finding a job, leaving them exposed to debt, depression and harmful addictions.
Working and receiving a living wage is fundamental to success. Over the next five years, we’re focused on increasing our support for programmes that support skills learning, internships, mentorships, training and pre-employment programmes to ensure all young people can access fulfilling employment.
