Positive Placements receives funding to continue delivering services in Mid Sussex

PP_PAGE_HEADER

YMCA DLG Positive Placements project has received funding from Mid Sussex District Council to continue delivering services across the district for another year. The funding will pay for a Co-ordinator post so that the project can continue supporting local young people.

Positive Placements is a programme that connects young people with mentors in their communities and provides a springboard for them to overcome the barriers to getting into employment.

It is a really important programme in the current financial climate as young people are disproportionately affected by the impact of the recession, the recent Welfare Reform and the withdrawal of Government funding.

Positive Placements programme has not only been really successful in supporting young people in to employment but also genuinely encourages a Youth Minded Community Approach, which reflects YMCA DLG’s vision and strategy for the future.

This funding will enable Positive Placements to continue working with marginalised young people enabling them to belong, contribute and thrive in our society.
