Event description
Renfrewshire Employability: better understand local employability initiatives and what they offer for young people

About this event

In Renfrewshire there are currently 1,035 young people seeking employment .

Numbers were at 1,505 in August 2020 compared with 810 in August 2019. While it's easy to see that COVID has had a significant impact on youth unemployment, in Renfrewshire we have also seen the highest decrease in youth unemployment thanks to implemented measures and effective partnership working. But there is still more to do.

You are invited to attend a one hour session aimed at anyone delivering services for young people, employability practitioners and business leaders. You will hear from Invest and Engage about what’s available, when and for whom.

• Young Person’s Guarantee (YPG) employer incentive scheme

• YPG portal

• YPG volunteering

• Saltire Awards

You’ll gain a better understanding of each of the current programmes, what they offer and how to get involved. Plus there’ll be an opportunity to ask questions of your own. Please register via Eventbrite and a MS Teams link will be sent to you on Monday 25 October. For further info contact

We look forward to welcoming you to the session.

Organiser Engage Renfrewshire

Organiser of Renfrewshire employability programme info session

Engage Renfrewshire is a Third Sector Interface (TSI); this means that we support local charities and other not-for-profit groups, so that they can do even more of what they’re good at. We empower organisations to be safe, resourceful and effective, and to grow and develop their services - meaning our communities are inclusive and aspirational.

We represent the third sector at a community planning level, provide an organisational hub, and offer financial services for individuals and organisations through our social enterprise Engage Finance. Furthermore, the Community And Voluntary Action Team work directly with local organisations and charities to increase their knowledge, resources and funding and to promote the services of our member organisations.

• Helping charities and community groups to be well managed, well resourced, well represented and well connected

• Supporting social enterprise start up

• Helping more organisations work collaboratively

• Ensuring the voice of our network is heard & understood by decision makers and funders

• Providing practical and responsive financial support

• Building a strong culture of volunteering that strengthens local organisations, enhances health & promotes life chances

• Working with public and private sectors to ensure we’re making the most of our resources

• Helping to create & maintain partnerships and find new ways of working to bring resources into Renfrewshire
