Barnado’s Parliamentary Reception

This afternoon I spoke with staff at Barnado’s and their charity partner Royal Mail. I heard about the success that they have had in getting young people who had dropped out of education into training and learning new skills.

One Barnado’s member of staff told me about the Wheels project that has successfully trained a number of young people in car mechanics and maintenance, with 93% of young people getting jobs or entering further education or training.
