GLA ESF Head 2Work

The Head 2Work project will support young Londoners aged 18 to 24 who are not in education, employment or training (NEET). They may have other specific complex needs or characteristics of disadvantage, which increases the risk of them experiencing reduced opportunities, low incomes and unemployment later in life. 

The project will help young people to build their confidence and skills through social action and volunteering, working directly with business mentors and employers and receiving employability training. These activities will support their transition into sustained employment, education or training. 

TOTAL grant fund f £794k over 3 years, for 2 or 3 projects with each bidding for 30% (£238k) to 50% (£397k) which means its circa £85k-£132k per year.
Participant numbers  60-100 per project, ie £3,970 per participant.
Required element: Social Action activities which would be new e.g. developing a campaign to raise awareness of a social issue, raise funds for a local charity or volunteer in the community. You would need to support the participant to develop their social action project idea, have Business Mentors to support them doing this and organise an event for them to present their social action project to an audience.
