Hailsham Works

The Town Council is doing its part for the local community by supporting a new project set up by Sussex-based national employment charity Tomorrow’s People to address youth unemployment in Hailsham.

The news that the project was successful in its bid to receive a grant from East Sussex County Council’s Economic Regeneration Fund in 2013 was not only welcomed by project partners, but by those who need it most — the younger, out-of-work members of our community.

Town Council members unanimously agreed in August 2013 to support the development of a Hailsham Works! project, which is aimed at tackling local youth unemployment with a particular emphasis on garnering support from local businesses in the form of training opportunities, mentoring schemes and support to work towards a successful and meaningful employment, coupled with training experience for young people in the local area.

The Town Council has proposed that a youth partnership between the Town Council and other interested organisations, including Hailsham Youth Council, local businesses and Sussex Police, will also be established in the near future.
