Member News: Barnardo's - Young Person’s Guarantee: Children’s charities say we must now all play our part and prove to young people that there are opportunities for them
This week charity consortium Action for Children, Barnardo’s Scotland and Princes Trust, highlight the worth of the Young Person’s Guarantee and call on employers to get involved and support young people in their communities.
Lockdown has been an incredibly challenging time for us all, but our young people have been amongst the most heavily impacted by the effects of Covid-19. That’s why we are committed to the creation of The Young Person’s Guarantee which aims to help our younger generation secure employment, training, education or volunteering opportunities.
We are particularly pleased that young people have been involved in the shaping of the Guarantee – they have stepped up to protect their future and now it’s our turn. We encourage Scotland’s employers to support the Young Person’s Guarantee by investing in and creating jobs to ensure that no one is left behind, and our current and future workforce have the skills and opportunities to flourish.
Martin Crewe, Barnardo’s Scotland, Director for Scotland, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer Apprenticeships to young people across our Retail and Support Services, we are also supporters of the Kickstart programme where very soon we will be looking to recruit 30 young people in to a range of posts across Barnardo’s Scotland.”
