Supporting young people furthest from the labour market into employment
WHO WE ARE
We’re working to change the way disadvantaged and under-served young people are supported into meaningful employment and helping them reach their full potential.
We do this by removing barriers for those furthest from the labour market and addressing ethnic disparities in youth unemployment.
Youth Futures Foundation was set-up in February 2019 to deploy the £90m from dormant assets allocated to helping disadvantaged young people into work.
Our mission is to support young people furthest from the labour market into meaningful employment, helping them to reach their full potential.
YOUNG PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE MISSING OUT ON THE BENEFITS OF MEANINGFUL WORK DUE TO BARRIERS THAT WE HAVE THE POWER TO OVERCOME
Joe Montgomery, Founding Chair of Youth Futures Foundation
SIGN UP TO BE KEPT UPDATED WITH OUR DEVELOPMENTS
Youth Futures Foundation is delighted to announce the appointment of two new members to our board; Dame Julia Cleverdon and Laura-Jane Rawlings, who join our Chair Joe Montgomery as non-executive directors of YFF. They bring with them diverse networks and unrivalled insights from their extensive experience working in the youth sector.
We are looking for three Board Members to provide governance of high quality and rigour whilst having the ambition to deliver real impact. Having recently appointed a Chair and two initial Board members, a full Board is now being appointed and appropriate governance structures put in place to oversee the development and delivery of YFF.
An inspiring morning at UnLtd – the Foundation for Social Entrepreneurs, learning how they improve access to employment through their support of social enterprises and social entrepreneurs. It was great to hear from the UnLtd team about this different model for having impact and also how they structure themselves and operate across the country.
