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
