Leeds awarded funds to help unemployed young people into Health & Care Careers

This unique, collaborative team of third sector partners will aid the programme in reaching some of the city’s least engaged young people at a hyper-local level. The organisations that have been successful at tender stage will be announced week commencing 24th January, with applications closing on the 20th.

The project is hosted by the Leeds Health and Care Academy, an innovative collaboration of Leeds health, care and university partners who design and deliver transformative learning and development opportunities for all health and care staff across the city.

The Leeds Health and Care Academy will work alongside two Leeds-based delivery partners, Lighthouse Futures Trust which supports young adults with learning difficulties or autism through a series of employment-focused activities.
