Youth Opportunity


Financial stability is one of United Way’s key priorities. In the UK 808,000 young people (ages 16-24) are classified as not in education, employment, or training, i.e. 'NEET' -  These numbers have continued to steadily increase since 2010.  Of all young people in the UK that are NEET, 39.9% are classified as unemployed, ten times higher than the national average. 

United Way UK designs and implements bespoke solutions related to youth employment and education in order to increase opportunities for financial stability among disadvantaged young people.

These programmes are designed in collaboration with our corporate partners, in line with their own community goals. We provide an end-to-end service, from needs-analysis to impact reporting, tailored to the needs of our partners.
