Young jobless to get start in social care

26th January 2010

The government has set up a programme called Care First Careers which is designed to offer young people who have been out of work a guaranteed job in social care.

Employers will be given £1,000 to employ a person between the ages of 18-24 who has been out of work for six months or longer. Care Services Minister Phil Hope said: "The government is planning a new National Care Service to meet the growing demand for adult care - we need to get the next generation of care staff in place now. I hope Care First Careers will encourage more young people to consider a future in care and help give them the leg-up they need to get started."
