Circle Collective is a charity and social enterprise that gets disadvantaged young people into permanent, life-changing work and to gain work experience in a high-end retail store and use this training to move into sustainable employment.

They are currently looking for referrals to their Back Your Future programme as they have the capacity to work with higher amounts of young people due to the majority of their referral partners being furloughed or having reduced referral numbers. They are offering services to any young people 16-30 in London primarily in Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Islington, Lewisham, Southwark, Bromley, Greenwich, and Croydon and would like to speak to any other charities/providers who would like to refer a young person to them.

They have pivoted to delivering an exciting online programme since the onset of Covid-19, that combines a mix of employability training, bespoke mentoring sessions, regular wellbeing workshops and the future option of quality work experience to address barriers unemployed young people face in gaining employment. They know that many young people will be suffering from social isolation during the Covid-19 lockdown, so they have built a timetable of interventions that promotes a mixture of group learning via video conferencing and individual support.
