Summary:
The London Borough of Islington invites suitable expressions of interest from organisations to co-produce enterprising projects and outcomes with young people that will support their employability and enterprise as well as enhance the offer in Islington for young people across the weekend. We are seeking dynamic and innovative organisations, to facilitate, direct and support young people to identify, design, plan and deliver their own solutions to Islington’s weekend activity offer. The offer will provide young people with opportunities to access recreational and social weekend opportunities whilst supporting young people to develop their enterprising and employability skills. Organisations will be asked to demonstrate how they will co-produce outcomes in equal partnership with young people and demonstrate their ability to apply young people’s talents and skills for their benefit, for their peers and the wider community. The Council recognises its responsibility to make substantive efforts to keep families above the poverty line, which is unmet by the National Minimum Wage owing to the high cost of living in the Capital.  The Council is looking for an organisation to support fair wages for its staff by paying the London Living Wage, with fair sickness, union and leave entitlements.
