Up to 60 aspiring young workers will soon be given valuable advice in finding employment by Charlton Athletic Football Club.

Community support will be available for young people aged between 16 to 24 to access education and training to find their dream job. Bexley Council have commissioned project.

Jennie Linnett, 55, a volunteer on the “Get Young People Working” programme, said she is confident once project bosses have secured the necessary mentors, the programme can meet its scheduled April start date.

“I think what Charlton do for the community is fantastic.

“We are hoping to get up to 60 mentors and they will give one-to-one coaching to these young people who need it both to find both work and education.”

Mrs Linnett, of Dartford, said the young workers will be referred to the project by employment agencies.

“There are numerous forces involved in this project but the principal is we are going to find these people work and talk to them about the future.

“It is the little things that most people would learn from home but these kids may not have had this support and maybe they need another person to talk to.”
