Charity officer at The skinners Company

What is your ‘Good Fight’?

I am passionate about preventing young people from becoming NEETs i.e. Not in Education, Employment, or Training. Currently over 900,000 young people in the UK are NEET. As Charities Officer of a Livery Company, I oversee the disbursement of training grants to young people. I am now working with our Company’s 6 schools to review the opportunities we have to address the needs and support the aspirations of those children who are not going to enter university straight after school. Working in a more joined up way with stakeholders and partners (both internal and external) gives a longitudinal context for schools which are often judged and driven by success in exam results alone rather than the how they help their students succeed after school.

What do you need to realise your goal?

I need support with communicating key messages and drawing up a change plan.

Where can we find out more?
