Talent Match is a £100 million Big Lottery Fund investment project to help long-term unemployed young people, aged 18-24, to gain employment across England.
Its aim is to ensure that the skills and experience of the voluntary and community sector can be used to help tackle youth unemployment and it has been designed by young people, for young people.
Voluntary Norfolk is working in partnership with The Prince’s Trust and other organisations in New Anglia to support unemployed young people into work through the Talent Match programme.
This programme has been fully funded by the Big Lottery Fund as part of Talent Match.
