JRF publications: Supporting young people into work and reducing ethnic inequalities

In October 2015,  the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) published two papers focusing on helping young people move into the labour market with a particular focus on improving outcomes for young people from ethnic groups who are currently disadvantaged.

Ethnicity, poverty and youth employment: improving outcomes for young people sets out the evidence on how young people from different groups are faring in the labour market, and proposes national policies to improve matters. These include major improvements in careers advice, apprenticeships and employer action.

Supporting ethnic minority young people from education into work highlights the crucial role of local authorities and other local organisations and draws on examples of good practice in Bristol, Nottingham and Tower Hamlets.
