Give Us A Chance teams up with the Young Women’s Trust

Communities that Work is pleased to be supporting the Young Women’s Trust (YWT), as it works to improve the life chances and opportunities for economically inactive young women in England and Wales.

YWT supports and represents young women who are trapped by low pay or no pay and are at greatest risk of a lifetime of poverty.

308,000 young women aged 16-24 in the UK are considered economically inactive (EI), compared to just 164,000 young men. YWT is concerned that young women who are EI are missing out on vital support to help them move into work.

Communities that Work is teaming up with YWT to help provide supports to those women in need. Find out how you can help YWT here.
