Ethnicity, poverty and youth employment: improving outcomes for young people

Ceri Hughes

Young people from ethnic minorities are disadvantaged in the labour market. This Solutions paper examines mainstream initiatives that have supported young people’s transitions into work, and sets out recommendations for improving support, offering a more effective route out of poverty.

The case is made for strategies tailored to local priorities and needs, backed up by clearer accountability, further resources, and monitoring at national level.
