About this service

Employability programme for long term unemployed 16 – 29 year olds from across the city of Edinburgh/Glasgow, Mid-Lothian, and East Lothian, Renfrewshire.
The programme has 3 phases - induction, placement with an employer, moving on to supported employment with the employer.

Barnardo's Works is an established service with an excellent track record and many years experience of working with
young people. The service equips some of the most disaffected and disadvantaged young people with the skills, experience and opportunities to access independent, sustainable employment. It effectively addresses issues at the root of social exclusion and assists young people to overcome disadvantage and the impact of poverty. Young people who access the service are aged 16 to 24 years and many are resident in some of the most deprived communities.
