EMR helps boost employment prospects of young people in partnership with Young Gloucestershire

Local metal recycler EMR Gloucester, based on The Old Airfield, continues to support Young Gloucestershire in a partnership which was launched in 2021.

EMR Gloucester donation to Young Gloucestershire

Young Gloucestershire supports young people aged between 11 and 25 who are experiencing challenges in their lives, enabling them to have the confidence, motivation and skills to improve their situation. The charity provides training and advice to enable individuals to develop the skills that they need to thrive as they reach adolescence and adulthood.

EMR Gloucester has offered a donation, as part of the metal recycler’s Young Futures Reimagined initiative, to support the charity’s programme for young people between the ages of 16 and 25 who are not in education, employment or training (NEET). This will allow 60 young people to complete the programme, enabling them to gain the qualifications and support they need to find employment.

Karl Gwilliam, Fundraiser at Young Gloucestershire commented:

“The ongoing support of EMR is fantastic enabling out-of-work young people from across the County to access to YG’s employment programme and services.”

Liam Wright, Operation Manager at EMR Gloucester, added:

“Having worked with Young Gloucestershire for a number of years, we have seen first-hand how dedicated Karl and the team are to the young people that they support.

“As young people leave education, they often find themselves unable access the support they need to find employment. Young Gloucestershire's NEET programme offers this support, giving young people the help they need to find employment, setting the foundations for them to enjoy a successful career and adult life.”
