Youth Innovation Fund

Youth Innovation Fund

The GLA’s Youth Innovation Fund is a £1m European Social Fund matched programme to support young people aged 16 to 24 into sustained employment, education or training.  Through the programme we have awarded funding to two projects which will run for a three year period from September 2017:

Getting Back on Track

This project helps young Londoners who have recently dropped out from their level 2 or 3 studies at college by offering careers support and mentoring together with practical work experience. This project is delivered by London South East Colleges.

Care Leavers into Work

This project supports care leavers into sustained employment in Lambeth, Hackney and Haringey. It provides intense one-to-one support, mentoring and employability training to improve the independence, self-confidence and work readiness of care leavers. This project is delivered by the Drive Forward Foundation.
