Event description

Description

We're all painfully aware that care-experienced young people are over-represented in unemployment statistics. This newly created focus group met for the first time in September with a wide range of attendees keen to address the issue.

Scotland's Youth Employment Strategy, Developing the Young Workforce, includes two recommendations specifically relating to supporting care leavers into employment, and it's also one of the pillars of the Scottish Care Leavers Covenant.

This group is aimed at young people and corporate parents across sectors who are involved directly in employability. This network promotes positive collaboration and joint working, and provides a welcome opportunity to discuss employability work and practices from around the country.

At our next meeting, Fiona Duncan, Chair of the Independent Root and Branch Review of Care will be attending the group to hear the young people's issues and concerns.
