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.
