- one-to-one coaching from experienced staff

Cllr Colin Barnard, Chair of Spelthorne Borough Council’s Economic Development Committee, said: “We know that young people experienced a loss of confidence during the Covid pandemic and do not always feel well supported when it comes to finding work or starting further education. The Youth Hub team can give tailored advice based on the individual’s circumstances, identifying gaps in skills and training, helping with things like drafting a CV, as well as linking young people to local businesses offering work experience or permanent employment.”
Kam Purewal, Marketing Manager at the Elmsleigh Centre, said: “We are delighted to welcome the Spelthorne Youth Hub to the Elmsleigh Centre, it will be a great addition offering help and advice to the youth of today.”
The Youth Hub will be open Monday – Saturday from 10am – 3pm. Just drop-in or call 07770 481773 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
