Project Hope is a new West Yorkshire initiative to provide support for young people leaving care to find employment, and help them develop the skills and experience they need for careers in the health and care sector. It’s now taking applications from young people who’d like to be part of the scheme

We are pleased to launch the Project Hope application form for young people.

Please share this across your teams as appropriate and help us to spread the word of Project Hope with any care experienced young people you may work with.

The Project Hope scheme will provide support for young people leaving care to find employment, and help them develop the skills and experience they need for careers in the health and care sector.

It will be jointly developed with partner organisations across West Yorkshire, and young people themselves to make sure it meets their needs.

The project is one of only 10 integrated care board pathfinder schemes announced by NHS England, as part of its commitment to the Care Leaver Covenant.  This is a national scheme to help care leavers age 16 to 25 to live independently by supporting them with independent living; education, employment and training; safety and security; mental and physical health; and finance.
