More than 110 new Youth Hubs offer job help

Young people across all corners of Great Britain are now benefitting from new specialist employment support and advice from local Youth Hubs.

Work Coaches from the Department for Work and Pensions are helping young jobseekers access local training and job opportunities from these hubs, as well as a range of services to address well-being needs.

Over 110 Youth Hubs are currently providing this crucial support virtually, and as the country progresses carefully along the roadmap to recovery, virtual Hubs are now opening in physical locations – helping reach even more young jobseekers in the communities where they live.

The Department for Work and Pensions has said that it will have at least one Youth Hub in every Jobcentre Plus district in the country. Youth Hubs share spaces with partners including colleges, charities, training providers and local councils, meaning people are able to access a range of services in one location.

Mims Davies, Minister for Employment, said: “We’re giving young jobseekers everything we’ve got: Youth Hubs, specialist Youth Employability Coaches and tailored employment programmes, as well as thousands of exciting jobs through the Kickstart Scheme. This is still a challenging time for many young people, but our Plan for Jobs is helping the next generation right across the country to boost their skills and get into work as we push to build back better.”

Youth Hubs, Youth Employability Coaches, and the Youth Employment Programme form part of the government’s multi-billion-pound Plan for Jobs aimed at protecting, supporting and creating jobs for people of all ages across the country.
