Movement To Work Charity

EDM number 1807 in 2017-19, proposed by Stephen Timms on 06/11/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Employment schemes.

That this House acknowledges the higher rate of unemployment among young people; commends the contribution of the business-led charity Movement to Work in arranging work placements for disadvantaged young people and others; notes that hundreds of thousands of young people are not in employment, education or training (NEET), with many trapped in a no-experience, no job cycle without access to networks that would enable them to obtain work placements, experience a work environment, develop ambition and start to build a career, so facilitating social mobility; further notes that through the Movement to Work employer network over 75,000 work placements have been completed, with over 50 per cent of young people, previously NEET, progressing from them into jobs, apprenticeships or returning to education; applauds Movement to Work for unlocking potential in young people; and urges employers of all kinds to offer work-placement and other career opportunities, providing experience, skills and confidence to enable young people to support themselves, their communities and our society.

This motion has been signed by a total of 21 MPs.
