Situation

Marginalised young people continue to be pushed towards the edges of society. Being young, unemployed and disadvantaged often has scarring and devastating effects. The longer a young person is removed from education, employment or training, the worse the long-term consequences for the individual. Ranked as the 8th most deprived borough in London, Lambeth has clear divides between the rich and poor, with high levels of social exclusion and areas of affluence and poverty often side-by-side.

Solution

Springboard has a proven track record of delivering successful Into Work programmes that aim to break the cycle of financial deprivation. We provide disadvantaged individuals with the skills, confidence and opportunities to achieve their potential, develop their financial capability and improve their prospects of economic independence. We will enable individuals to tackle their barriers and secure employment through employability training, work placement experience and dedicated 1-2-1 mentoring.
