Supporting young people into careers in Health and Social Care:

 

At a time when young people need support more than ever, Fusion21 is proud to support The Prince’s Trust to help young people build a better future for themselves and their communities.  The impact of Covid-19 on youth unemployment is stark, with young people nearly 4 times more likely to be unemployed.

The £150,000 grant funding provided via the Fusion21 Foundation will support over 400 young people on their journey to access employment pathways as part of the Trust’s transformational partnership with the Department of Health and Social Care. The main ambition of this programme is to support young people to step into and build a fulfilling career in the Health and Social Care sector, through breaking down barriers and providing access to employment.

The partnership, launched in June, will also see Fusion21 staff participate in corporate volunteering opportunities, working directly with young people to help with their journey.
