As part of the Talent Match programme, Derventio Housing Trust worked with people aged 18 to 24 who were disadvantaged and struggling to find career opportunities. Talent Match was a national scheme designed for young people by young people launched by The Big Lottery Fund .
The programme boosted opportunities for young people who were furthest from the labour market – opening up doors for training, volunteering and employment in their local area.
We were part of the scheme in Derbyshire, working with people in deprived areas in Amber Valley, Erewash and Glossop. The partnership across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire was led by Groundwork Greater Nottingham . The project has now ended.
