Our plans to broaden our reach and put young people’s employability at the heart of Your Own Place came a step closer this week. We have been funded by the Big Lottery Awards for All Fund to take the next step in our growth – to develop more Tenancy & Independent Living Skills (TILS) training capacity. We’ll be providing comprehensive training to eight current and future youth workers who want to work for an innovative, inspiring and aspiring social enterprise. We will be looking for youth workers that share our values and fun-filled approach to supporting young people in the transition to adulthood. We will start recruiting in December and the training will be early in 2017. The paid one-week training will be delivered in partnership with The Participation People. The funding also means we can further develop and improve our training resources, an integral part of our TILS training package. More trainers mean we can reach more young people all over the county and beyond from 2017.
