Thanks to support from Big Lottery Reaching Communities, Cumbria Youth Alliance has been granted funding worth £258,000 over a three year period to focus on working with young people at risk of becoming NEET or already NEET in the Allerdale and Copeland Area. Both these posts are subject to enhanced DBS checks and on provision of suitable references, one of whom should be your most recent/current employer.

For more information on these exciting and rewarding opportunities please visit our Current Vacancies page.

We are recruiting on First Steps to Employment! 

Thanks to funding from The Francis C Scott Trust, Allerdale Borough Council and Equitable Charitable Trust we are able to continue running the successful First Steps to Employment project.

We are now looking to recruit young people to this project who are NEET, so that we can guide and help them into Employment, Education or Training.

Want to be apart of this successful project? Need that start in life? Then  go to our FSTE page on our website and find out more about how to apply.
