Career Connect is a North West charity supporting young people and adults to start and develop their careers. In 2010-2011, the NEET rates for vulnerable young people, particularly young offenders, those in/leaving care and those with LLDD were drastically increasing at a time when significant public spending cuts were being made. In response to this, we designed a resilience based programme for the DWP Innovation Fund. In partnership with Triodos Bank, a range of social investors were identified to support the £4m programme targeting 4000 vulnerable NEET/at risk of NEET young people. To date 4241 young people have achieved outcomes.
