Young Women's Trust strategy 2019-2022

We have embarked on an ambitious new three-year strategy. It is shaped by the young women we work with, aims to

  • support young women on the road to work
  • increase their confidence and wellbeing 
  • make the case for fair workplaces

Talent exists everywhere, but sadly opportunities do not – and with your support we are determined to change that.

In 2019-2022 we will

  • Support 10,000 young women to build their confidence and employability through our Work It Out coaching and CV feedback service.
  • Provide 1,000 young women with small grants to enable them to take steps towards work or training.
  • Build a network of 1,000 young women who have personal experience of low or no pay and empower them to have their voices heard through our influencing activities. 
  • Develop and implement a new digital strategy, better engaging and informing young women. 
  • Become a recognised leader on the theme of young women and work. 
  • Build new collaborations and partnerships so we can better meet the needs of young women and bring about changes to policy and practice.
  • Undertake high quality research to ensure the needs of young women and the barriers they face are widely understood.
  • Secure policy changes to improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of young women.

We will focus our work on three key areas

  1. The road to work
  2. Confidence and wellbeing
  3. A fair workplace
