Certain groups face particular issues in the world of employment. For example, ex-offenders are often put at a disadvantage by application forms which require them to disclose offending histories. Older people who have lost a job are less likely to be taken on than younger counterparts, despite their wide experience. Youth unemployment is a massive problem in the UK and across Europe, and need special attention as they are, of course, the people who will define economies’ futures.
Here you can search the innovations we’ve profiled by who the main beneficiary group is. Many innovations work with more than one beneficiary group, and others work more generally across groups. We hope this tool will be useful to help you find out what is going on to help the people with whom you work, or who particularly interest you.
