New Futures

 

New Futures project offers help and support for young unemployed people across the Liverpool City Region

 

Project summary

The New Futures project provides a personalised, flexible package of support to help up to 1,400 young people (15-24 year olds) who are not in education, employment or training to move towards a better future in employment.

The project works with those in need of additional support to help develop their skills and find work. Potential participants are assessed to identify their needs and the level of support required, and are then helped to move onto employment, self-employment, apprenticeships, further education or training.

Support can be short term or longer term and include working on employability skills such as help with applications, CV’s and interview preparation; personal development; increasing awareness of opportunities available and developing vocational skills.

Funded by European Social Fund and Education and Skills Funding Agency,  the project has received £2,250,000 to deliver the programme until July 2021.
