Chris Barrett our Community Employment & Education manager said: “We are excited to add a new employability strand to our portfolio of work which we will look to develop our new Social, Education & Health Hub. Our three employability programmes will provide positive pathways and tailored support for local young people, to help prepare them for the world of work.“
