On 26th February 2019 we hosted our second Young Women’s Trust Awards. At the Awards we recognised all the amazing young women we meet through our work and all the young women we are still to meet in the UK who overcome challenges every day to find and stay in work.

We also raised funds at the event to support young women to build their confidence, broaden their expectations and find work. We raised a total of £30,813 on the night, which will help 357 young women to work and thrive in 2019.
