Communities Working Together

As part of a new ESF funded project Young People Cornwall are focusing on the Falmouth and Penryn area and will be supporting NEET young people aged 16-25yrs to explore their options, build confidence and self-esteem and support them back into work, training and education

  • Communities Working Together


Working with young people aged 16-25 years at any point of their journey towards employment, education and training. Working with participants in a holistic way helping them address, over a period of time, all the interconnected barriers which prevent progress.


Providing a key worker who will be a constant source of support and feedback for the individual and their family when relevant. Assisting participants to develop their own individual action plan, which addresses their own individual circumstances.

Where necessary providing access to key specialist services (e.g. mental health, drug and alcohol abuse etc) helping participants address profound needs. Supporting from the earliest stages of building confidence and self-esteem, gaining information advice and guidance on a number of barriers they may be experiencing, to CV, application writing and employability skills.

We will work with a young person individually to create a bespoke action plan tailored to them, as well as encourage and support them to be involved in group and community activity.


Any young person aged 16-25yrs who is NEET (not in employment, education or training)

Although our main focus is Falmouth and Penryn, this project uses a place based approach, as such we can support young people within the following key towns within Cornwall, Penzance, CPR, Falmouth and Penryn, Newquay, St Austell, Bodmin, Looe, Torpoint, they will be supported into our local partners activities and engagement within each area.


We welcome referrals, please just give us a call or send an email. We just ask that if you are referring on behalf of the individual that you discuss this with them first. Ideally we would need the individuals name, contact details and some basic information on the young person eligibility and reasons for referral. We will then contact the referee to discuss their referral further, answer any questions they may have, and arrange an initial meeting.

In relevant circumstances and upon request we can also contact the referrer to update them on progress, and work together for the benefit of the participant.
