Young people are a vital part of the area’s future and we as a business partnership want to work constructively with them.
Our business members want to engage and support young people from across the area, seeing it not only as a way of giving something back to the local community but crucially, helping to connect local young people with young employment opportunities in the area. With the Council’s resources under increasing pressure, we are keen to work in partnership with them, our business members, community groups, schools and colleges to benefit all.
We run a number of projects throughout the year to Engage the Next Generation. These include The Homework Club and our annual Youth Career Expo which aims to give young people an insight into the world of work.
