Supporting vulnerable young people
This week the Conservative government announced plans to support thousands of at-risk young people with one-on-one mentoring and job opportunities, as we help every young person to reach their full potential.
- Every young person should have the chance to thrive, whether they are already on the right path to success or need a guiding hand.
- That is why the government has announced plans to support 5,000 teenagers with intensive mentoring and one-to-one careers coaching, as well as offering 2,600 young people at risk of involvement with crime a job placement to help keep them on the straight and narrow.
- These schemes – backed by more than £15 million of funding – will help thousands more young people develop vital skills and build their confidence, helping them reach their full potential.
