Lancashire’s Invest in Youth project

Community CVS is a delivery partner in the Invest in Youth project in Lancashire. Invest in Youth is part of the nationwide Building Better Opportunities programme, funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and The National Lottery Community Fund to help tackle the poverty and social exclusion faced by the most disadvantaged people in England. Find out more here.

The project aims to transform the futures of young people aged between 15 and 24 who would like to work but are unable to without additional skills or support. Through this project we work with young people who are not in employment, education or training (NEET), including young people at risk of becoming NEET.

Through Invest in Youth project, participants receive intensive support from a Key Worker to be able to engage in work readiness activity. Following an initial assessment of each participant’s interests and the barriers they face around entering work or further learning, the Key Worker guides the participant to achieve milestones agreed within their personal action plan.

Within 3 years, the Invest in Youth partnership aims to support 770 young people aged 15-24 to overcome their barriers and move closer to employment, education or training. We are proud to be part this specialist partnership of social enterprises and community organisations whose work is transforming lives across Lancashire.
