Additional £4 million for the Young Person’s Guarantee - Perthshire Chamber of Commerce

Additional £4 million for the Young Person’s Guarantee

Young people struggling to access employment will be supported by an additional £4 million through the Young Person’s Guarantee.

The funding will help young people impacted most by the pandemic, including those who are care-experienced and those experiencing mental health issues.

Three programmes will share the £4 million, which will connect people with employers, training and volunteering opportunities.

This additional £4 million funding for the Young Person’s Guarantee will be shared between three programmes:

  • Inspiring Scotland will receive £2.6 million towards their Our Future Now programme which offers young people the opportunity to take part in work placements, shadowing and interview training
  • The Young People’s Consortium (Action for Children, Barnardo’s and Prince’s Trust) will receive £1.4 million to help young people with experience of the care system secure full-time employment
  • Volunteering Matters, in partnership with the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) , will receive £97,000 towards their work to support young people in Glasgow, including those experiencing mental health issues, to gain access to formal volunteering opportunities
