    'Still Hidden': Conference, Gorton Monastery,  Thursday 11th October 2018

    Do you know any leaders who can help make things better for Greater Manchester’s young people? Are they free to attend our 'Still Hidden' conference taking place on 11th October 2018?

    We want national, regional and local decision makers from all sectors to attend, as our aim is to create a platform from which we can continue to improve the life chances for young people furthest from employment in Greater Manchester.

    It is important that we don’t just mark the end of our programme (ending December 2018) but get the people in the room who can help us create a legacy of lasting change. For that reason we will be launching our Still Hidden report at the event - with recommendations about what needs to happen next. 

    Please click here for more information and to book your space. Please pass details of the event onto anyone who you think can join us to make a difference.

Greater Manchester Talent Match is a Big Lottery-funded programme bringing together the private, public and voluntary sectors to support young people aged 18-24 who have been out of employment, education or training for twelve months or more and who need extra support to help them along their pathway to work.
