Details of the GLA ESF programme can be found at: www.london.gov.uk/priorities/young-people/education-and-training/esf-you.... The programme has three strands: supporting young Londoners facing exclusion from school (delivered by 3SC and Prevista); working with young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) or at risk of becoming NEET because of a learning difficulty or disability (delivery by Leonard and Cheshire Disability and Remploy); and supporting young Londoners remanded or sentenced to custody to re-engage with education, employment or training (delivered by Nacro and Working Links).  A Progress update on the programme was delivered to Investment and Performance Board (IPB) on 16 January 2014 and is available online.
