2020 Youth Voice Census Report launches on 23 June

Events


Youth Employment UK will be hosting an online event on 23 June to mark the launch for their 2020 Youth Voice Census Report. This is an opportunity for you to hear from key members of their team and young people as they discuss the key findings.

The Youth Voice Census provides an important view of the world, as young people are experiencing it. It ensures that young people’s voices are heard by those working to support them, including policy makers, employers and educators.

The 2020 findings could not be more important in the current climate and Youth Employment UK are working hard to ensure that they, and fellow organisations, can support young people during these difficult times.

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) has called on “bold action to retrain workers and create good quality new jobs”, and says there needs to be more investment in #skills and #retraining to help adults find work.
