Barnardo's teams up with KFC on work scheme for vulnerable young people
Up to 100 young people, including care leavers and young people with disabilities, are to be offered unpaid work placements at KFC, as part of a partnership between the fast food chain and Barnardo’s.
The initiative, which was piloted in the North West last year has already started recruiting young people throughout the North East, Wales and Yorkshire, and will be expanding to the rest of the UK later in the year.
Those involved are offered a “job interview” for the scheme, followed by an unpaid work experience placement of up to four weeks. It is hoped that 100 vulnerable young people will have participated in the scheme by the end of the year.
