"Regardless of what may be holding a young person back, the Youth Hub team will provide a wrap-around support package to ensure there is no limit to a young person reaching their full potential."

The Youth Hub provides one-to-one support for local young people between the ages of 18 and 24 in preparing for the world of work.

The team is made up of youth employment coaches, youth workers, alongside health and well-being professionals.
