With unemployment levels in the UK set to soar as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, charity and social business Catch22 and Australian employment company Angus Knight have teamed up to create a new venture – Jobs 22.
Jobs 22 will design programmes, using the experience of Catch22 and Angus Knight, to help those who face barriers to employment find work.
Catch22 is a part of the EUROMET, a unique European youth care alliance, the history of which goes back to 1839. It is a network of institutions covering both eastern and western Europe, providing various educational, socialisation, treatment and vocational programmes, working pedagogically with seriously disadvantaged children and youth, between the ages of 4 and 25, in Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Sweden, United Kingdom and Denmark.
Run by Catch22, the NLCBF brings together over 100 local authority leaving care services for professional and practice development.
A partnership, funded by Google, to train more than 500 social and youth workers, teachers and other frontline professionals to help them deal with the challenges and opportunities of how young at-risk people are using social media.
A health and wellbeing service, with Catch22 leading a range of specialist voluntary sector organisations and working with the local authority, CCG and a young people’s board
An annual expedition delivered in partnership with the British Exploring Society for young people already engaged with Catch22.
