BYCS is pleased to announce that it has been successful in securing funding to be part of a new project to support some of Leicester and Leicestershire’s most at risk young people.

The project, called the Youth Employability Support (YES) project, will aim to transform the futures of 400 young people between the ages of 15 and 24 who are currently the furthest from being able to move into employment.

It will focus on young people who face extra barriers to work, such English language skills, mental or physical health difficulties, homelessness, disabilities or being a carer, but it will also be open to any young person in Leicester or Leicestershire who is not in employment, education or training.


A new approach
Unlike traditional services, the YES Project will deliver a bespoke journey for young people. YES Project staff will reach out to young people, assess their needs and then work with the young person to develop a support package that works for them.
Support on offer will include one to one mentoring, work places, creative short courses, team building and more.
