£20 million to help 10,000 young people into NHS careers

The Department of Health and Social Care has announced a £20m fund to support 10,000 young people from all backgrounds to get a career in the NHS.

This will be matched by £7m from the Prince’s Trust. The three-year pre-employment programme will begin later this year and will involve up to 150 NHS trusts in England. Participants will gain basic skills and experience of working in the NHS. The programme will focus on helping those who otherwise may not have the opportunity to gain this experience to overcome barriers and enter sustainable employment.
