You told us that you need more information on opportunities to empower you to succeed. Our Life Chances programme will support you to find out about the opportunities you want – be that work experience, apprenticeships, or employment opportunities – or the advice you need – from housing to health.
Over the coming months, we will work with young people to create an Opportunity Bank that matches young people’s individual need with an individual solution. If you are interested in being part of this development, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
