ThinkForward aims to prevent youth unemployment. We want young people at the highest risk of leaving school and becoming unemployed to receive the support they need to succeed in education and make a successful transition into work.
ThinkForward runs two long-term coaching programmes. Highly-skilled coaches build consistent, trusted relationships with young people and our ‘ready for work’ activities offer young people opportunities to connect with, and get experience of, the workplace.
Our ThinkForward programme works with hard to reach, disengaged young people in Tower Hamlets and Islington in London, Nottingham, and Kent.
MoveForward works in London, Kent and the West Midlands with young people who have mild to moderate learning disabilities with the aim of supporting them into sustainable paid employment.
In 2019 we will be supporting more than 1000 young people.
