Progress is part of the Building Better Opportunities programme designed to support young people aged 14-25 who are not in education, training or employment.
We are continuing to support young people remotely and are beginning to offer face to face meetings whilst following government guidelines. Drop in sessions for young people to find out about volunteering opportunities are still available on zoom twice a week in addition to one to one support via telephone, email and zoom. We also have an online volunteering activity booklet to engage young people and promote the benefits of volunteering for the individual and community. Recently we have had an increasing number of inquiries for volunteering opportunities from young people who are 14-18 years of age.
