With the belief that the young people of Haverhill deserve the best possible opportunities for training and reaching their full potential, the Youth Skills Manager was set up (initially by One Haverhill) in 2013.
The Youth Skills and Family Manager, Karen Chapple, is employed by HTC to work with young people and families by building positive relationships with local businesses and organisations to enable a range of differing needs and aspirations are met.
Karen currently has the support of two Youth Skills and Families Advisors.
Since April 2013 to date we have signed up and offered support to over 2000 young people. Of this number 65 percent have moved on to employment, learning or training.
The success of the project is largely attributed to the partnership-working ethos. Good relationships have been formed with the local community, schools, further education colleges, training providers, services, businesses, and our young clients. Together we have proved we are stronger and better equipped to deal with differing needs and offer the best all round support package.
Mission Statement- “The right support at the right time can be life changing”.
