Young Women’s Trust partners with News Corp UK on social mobility

Young Women’s Trust is partnering with News Corp UK to grow its Work It Out service supporting young women into work and promote social mobility.

The company, which owns The Sun, The Times and The Sunday Times along with Dow Jones and HarperCollins, has chosen Young Women’s Trust to be the beneficiary of a £25,000 grant alongside voluntary staff support as part of its year-long focus on social mobility.

Young Women’s Trust chair Jo-ann Robertson said:

“We are over the moon to have been awarded this donation from News Corp UK to grow our service and support more disadvantaged young women into work.

“Young Women’s Trust is helping young women take their next steps by providing free employability coaching to identify their skills and boost their confidence, professional feedback on their CVs, and grants to give them the tools, transport and technology to find work.

“We’re getting great feedback from the young women using our services and we hope to reach many more women through this exciting partnership.”
