Youth employment fund delivers record year.

Youth employment fund delivers record year.

Last year the 14:19 Fund helped over 5,000 young people into a positive destination of employment, education or training.  This is more young people than previous years and brings the total young people who have secured a positive destination to 26,000.

 

These results have been delivered by the portfolio of 20 Scottish charities who have become some of the most effective in helping young people to change their lives.

Celia Tennant, Chief Executive said: “The 14:19 Fund has the ambitious target of helping 35,000 young people into sustainable employment, education or training over 10 years, and to help thousands more young people with the confidence and skills to change their own lives for the better.  With two years to go, we are committed to achieving this.”

The 14:19 Fund is unique in its offer of long term funding coupled with significant development support and access to additional expertise to help build efficacy, resilience and sustainability from within.  These are critical factors in the fund’s success and the reasons why the 20 charities have developed into a fit, dynamic and responsive portfolio.
