The East Leeds Project is delighted to make an exciting announcement to start the year with major funding news through the UK Community Renewal Fund and a call for third sector partners.
We’re proud to be involved in an innovative new partnership programme called Healthier Working Futures that brings together a range of health, care and third sector partners who have received national funding through the UK Community Renewal Fund.
The programme aims to open up fulfilling employment opportunities in the health and care sector for young adults aged 16-25 who are unemployed or economically inactive and face multiple and diverse barriers to employment.
Our mobile makerspace, KIOSK, will play a key role in the project by engaging young people with conversations about careers in the health and care sector through creative workshops led by Leeds-based artists.
Leeds Health and Care Academy are currently inviting applications from third sector organisations who are interested in engaging with the programme between the end of January and end of June 2022. Applicants must already be working with the target age group, but prior knowledge of the health and care sector is not a requirement as a full induction will be provided.
Funding is available for successful partners, who will run a programme of activity to equip young people with the skills and confidence that they need to apply for health and care roles.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on Thursday 20th January.
