On the 13th November 2018 Youth Employment UK hosted a roundtable with civil servants from across government to talk about all things youth employment.
As an organisation that works closely with a number of government departments we spend a lot of time exploring the range of initiatives across government. We wanted to bring colleagues together to share some of the findings from our research this year in particular the Youth Voice Census and the our report on social mobility and look at how we can better support cross-government working.
The event offered colleagues a chance to explore a range of issues, identify what is working in youth employment services and understand what priorities exist within other departments.
It was a huge success and the feedback we have had has been really encouraging, based on the feedback we will be hosting these meetings on a quarterly basis across 2019 with a range of partners.
A big thanks to our patron Pearson for hosting the meeting in their London office.
