Author : Jane Evans, Deborah Meyer, Anne Pinney and Barbara Robinson (2009)

Price : Free

Second Chances dispels the stereotype that young people not in employment, education or training (NEET) are 'idle' or 'feckless', hanging around on street corners rather than getting a job.

75 young people attending Barnardo¿s services around the UK spoke about the real challenges they faced, as well as their aspirations. Barnardo¿s services work to unlock the potential and motivation of young people who have been labelled as 'failures' at school. Through vocational training centres and support services Barnardo's helps young people overcome barriers to education and training and achieve their ambitions.
