Harlow: Youngsters Run 'Pop Up' Job Shop
Young people in Harlow will design and run their own 'pop up' job centre after a youth charity teamed up with millionaire entrepreneur Dave Fishwick to help combat youth unemployment.
The Foyer Federation and the Bank of Dave star aim to reinvent the job centre in a trial experiment which will see employers go to the unemployed in pop up talent shops in deprived communities.
The aim of the project is to inspire unemployed young people, and secure work placements with employers who would normally not consider hiring them.
Jane Slowey, chief executive of the Foyer Federation, said: "It'll pop up where young people are, rather then expecting young people to go to it.
"Because it'll be designed by young people, it'll be a kind of place where young people want to go. It might be in an empty shop or a community centre."
Jane continued to tell Heart it'll be very hands on: "We want young people to be able to try things out. So we want employers that can show directly the work that they might have for young people, but also opportunities for young people to experience the kinds of work there might be in the future."
A man who set a fire on the ninth floor of a block of flats in Southend, killing a neighbour and her unborn child, has been made subject of a hospital order.
Heart can reveal since so called 'legal highs' were banned last May - Essex Police have made 9 arrests relating to the supply or possession of the drugs.
