Soft Touch Arts joins with VAL for the YES project

Soft Touch Arts is one of eight partners working with Voluntary Action LeicesterShire (VAL) on a new £1.94m project that will 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 as 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.

The YES project is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund
