A new £6.8 million project will guarantee support for 2,800 disadvantaged young people in Nottinghamshire who are at risk of social exclusion because they have no work or any prospect of getting a job.

Nottingham Work is funded by using Nottingham City Council and European Structural and Investment funds. It builds on the city council’s existing Step into Work, Nottingham Jobs Fund and Nottingham Apprenticeship Grant schemes, but also includes an intensive careers advice programme for 16 and 17-year-olds and incentives for young people and employers to engage in Traineeships.
