Youths in the UK
Many are very well qualified, with the potential to bring a wealth of experience to the UK, yet because they are often in a new environment, they face considerable disadvantages in the employment market. They often lack the knowledge of the local networks, self-confidence, self-esteem and opportunities to practice their skills to gain work experience in order to more effectively compete in the employment market.
Facilitation and support enables them to unlock their potential and access opportunities that otherwise would not have been available to them. Our current activities center on the provision of voluntary opportunities, including some work placements, for service users, enabling them to gain valuable UK work experience and references, increasing their opportunities for paid employment and economic independence in the future.
We also have a program specifically targeting young people. Through the youth project we aim to provide effective peer support to young people from marginalized and disadvantaged communities that may be socially excluded, isolated and vulnerable.
Our program allow young people to volunteer in a range of activities and provide events and activities that benefit the wider community, particularly in Newham, London where we are based. Our services are influenced and developed by our young people and address the needs of young people.
The Difference We Are Making
Our services are helping the participants to develop their language skills, gain confidence and rebuild their self-esteem in a friendly welcoming local work setting. The project helps them to gain work experience and references. This greatly enhances their employ-ability and ability to compete in the UK labor market. read more
