Youth Employment

Why we need your help

This innovative local giving programme is supporting young people who are struggling to find work. The programme specifically provides support to help young people living in London's East End develop essential soft skills required to gain and sustain work.

East London continues to have some of the highest unemployment rates in the capital, with Tower Hamlets representing the highest unemployment rate in the country at 7.7% and only 15% of jobs in Tower Hamlets go to local residents; this particularly effects young people.

In Tower Hamlets over the last 15 years, educational attainment has significantly improved. Unfortunately, achieving good GCSE results is not translating into sustainable employment for young people.  There are many barriers to gaining and maintaining sustainable employment. Tower Hamlets Giving is striving to remove these barriers to improve local young people’s employment opportunities and outcomes by developing essential soft skills and providing tailored work placements.
