The need: Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are twice as likely to be out of employment than their better-off peers.
Our charity partner: Career Ready works in 30 out of the 50 most disadvantaged Local Authorities in England, making a transformational difference to young lives, boosting their social mobility, attainment, and wellbeing through mentoring, paid internships, skills masterclasses, workplace visits, and wider careers activities.
Our impact: Impetus is supporting Career Ready to grow the number of paid internships so it can reach more young people nationally, with targeted employability support.
