The Central and West Hampshire Youth Employment Hub is a joined-up service designed to unlock the potential of young people, aged 16-24. Through direct individual bespoke support and referrals to other services, it offers a holistic approach to help them achieve their employment goals.
Since opening in November, there have been over a hundred young people attending the hub and accessing the expertise of Work Coaches, Employment Support Officers and a range of other service providers.
Through ongoing help and access to an online platform, that includes opportunities to link up with industry mentors, the hub can help young people build up skills and increase their chances of gaining employment.
Many of the young people have gained volunteering and work experience roles, been assisted onto education and training courses, received health and wellbeing support, and have achieved employment.
As this is a partnership between Eastleigh, Test Valley, New Forest and Winchester Councils and the Department for Work and Pensions, there are venues in Eastleigh, Romsey, Andover, Totton, Brockenhurst and Winchester. If you or anyone you know would be interested in attending the hub, please contact us on 07876 661525 or firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment.
