Quilter’s charity launches partnership with three employment charities

22 January 2020

The Quilter Foundation is pleased to announce it has partnered with three charities which will all be supported by its £450,000 Secure Futures Fund, opened last year.

Quilter plc’s charity, The Quilter Foundation has partnered with Southampton-based, self-development training charity, Safe New Futures; Birmingham sport for employability charity, Street League and will support sports charity, School of Hard Knocks’ work in London.

Each of the charities will deliver innovative programmes across the UK, for three years, which all support young people (aged 16-25) to overcome barriers to employment and build a positive future.

This latest project builds on the Quilter Foundation’s Young Carers Campaign and Financial Education work, which supported over 13,000 young people in 2019.

Staff from the FTSE 250 wealth management company will also share their experience and time to help support the project.

Young people still face the highest levels of unemployment when compared with other age groups. Social mobility is also a problem. If born disadvantaged, young people are more likely to face barriers to employment, particularly in accessing certain industries and ‘professional’ occupations.

Paul Feeney, CEO of Quilter and chair of the trustees for the Quilter Foundation says:

“The Quilter Foundation’s mission is to empower young people to fulfil their potential, thrive and prosper and I believe that the three charities we are partnering with today help us move closer to achieving this ambition.

“It is essential that we give young people the opportunity to develop the skills and confidence to build a sustainable and high quality career for themselves, which is why we set up the Secure Futures Fund. I am very excited to see how over the next three years and beyond, we can help young people reach their goals and achieve personal and economic well-being.”
