We know from conversations with our business partners and through ongoing research that we face a serious skills shortage in a range of sectors including technology, hospitality, property and construction. Bringing together different parts of the borough is what we do best, and Skills + Employment is our campaign to provide those facing disadvantage the best chances to secure quality employment.

  • £1,600 could support a young person on a 6 week employability course and provide further support for a year 

  • £25,000 would support an entire cohort of 16-24 year-olds on an employability course
