Cash boost will help Tomorrow’s People expand

As the UK’s recession deepens, not only have the 1.2 million young people currently not in education, employment or training (NEET) become increasingly vulnerable, we are at risk of losing a whole new generation of potential as that number escalates.

Securing new funding has become even more crucial, so we were absolutely delighted to hear that Tomorrow’s People, a charity helping unemployed people into work, has been awarded £3.2 million in Scotland to help it expand its unique Working It Out programme for those who are NEET and fall into the ‘More Choices, More Chances’ group.
