LATEST UPDATES ON COVID-19

A message of solidarity – CLICK TO EXPAND

We are amidst extraordinary times as a result of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Despite the challenges we are all facing, it’s important that we continue to collaborate; sharing our experiences and sharing our learning as we navigate the road ahead.

Movement to Work takes very seriously its responsibility to continue to advocate for young people alongside supporting businesses during this period of uncertainty. We understand that for many of the organisations in our network, you are under new pressure, facing unprecedented challenges and so rest assured we will be patient with you as you adjust.

However, we are also particularly mindful of the vulnerable young people who will be seriously affected by these rapid changes. We must not let plans for them fall at the way side. This is a daunting time for all of us, but particularly for young people who do not have sufficient support networks. We will not forget them.

Over the coming weeks and months, Movement to Work will be sharing some thoughts on how we can still tackle youth unemployment as we continue to respond to the pandemic. We’ll be sharing what we’re seeing in our network and beyond, to inspire resilience and promote solidarity.

Whilst some workforces are closing down, some are opening up and so we’ll be keeping an eye on the tide so see where young people can seize new opportunities for work, training or valuable experience. We are watching the news with you as the government continues to roll out plans to protect businesses, jobs, and wages.

Lastly, here at Movement to Work we are optimistic. We are acutely aware that when things start to recover, we will have an economy to rebuild. With this in mind, we will be working to ensure that young people are front and centre of this effort.

Please see below for an overview of what we are doing here at Movement to Work in response to Coronavirus (COVID-19), as well as some news and updates from our network. We’ll be keeping you regularly updated as things unfold.

Please keep in touch! Let us know what new measures, products and services you’re putting in place, and if you have any problems you need help solving. We are here to help. By brainstorming and sharing best practices, we can all be as efficient and effective as possible.

Thank you,

Movement to Work team

As part of the steps we are taking at Movement to Work, to do what we can to support the response to Coronavirus, our CEO Sam Olsen will be temporarily returning to her role at the Department for Education (DfE). Sam will join the crucial effort to coordinate the DfE response to the outbreak, helping to ensure we are able to protect children in the care system as we continue to face this unprecedented challenge. Incoming COO Dal Channa will temporarily step into the CEO position during this period. 

In it together
