A drive to to help people aged 16 to 29 not in education, employment or training into sustainable employment has been launched in Liverpool.

The City Social Partnership will involve public and private sector organisations working together to identify local employment needs and skills shortages across Liverpool city region, and developing job ready, motivated young people. 

The programme is led by Tomorrow’s People, a national charity which has been working on Merseyside since the year 2000.

It provides work coaches and mentors for young people, helping them to develop the skills needed to enter employment. Trained support coaches offer in-work care for a minimum of 12 months afterwards.

The initiative is being supported by First Ark, a social business based in Liverpool city region.

Gilly Orr, head of social partnerships at Tomorrow’s People, said: “The City Social Partnership is an exciting new chapter for us.

“For 30 years, Tomorrow’s People has equipped young people with the skills they need to get into employment.

“This partnership model allows us to develop a sustainable programme that benefits young people, businesses and the entire community.
