Youth unemployment to be tackled with 80 new jobs in Bromley
At least 80 jobs will be created by a scheme to curb youth unemployment.
The Bromley Youth Employment Project has been developed by Bromley Council for 18 to 24-year-olds who live in the borough.
Around £500,000 has been set aside to fund the three-year project, which begins in April next year and is aimed at “creating sustainable jobs”.
Cllr Graham Arthur said: “We have recognised the long-lasting negative effects early experiences of unemployment can have on a generation of young people and we are keen to help them to find sustainable employment opportunities.”
The scheme will be available through job centres next year.
