  21. 21. Details of Worcestershire’s Total Place work<br />
  22. 22. NEETs: Rationale<br />Rising levels of unemployment amongst young people<br />Risk of a generation “wasted”<br />Differential impact and levels across the county<br />NEET group consume disproportion of public resources – now and in later life<br />Consequences follow NEETs throughout life<br />Impact of the recession<br />Opportunity to engage local employers and community sector<br />
  23. 23. NEETs: Ambition<br />Prevent growth in numbers<br />and form long term basis for reduction<br />Enhance engagement <br />participation in education and training<br />apprenticeships<br />challenge benefits culture/dependency<br />Raise aspirations of young people<br />Create a single approach across agencies<br />Potential for significant savings<br />

Areas of Highest Need: Rationale<br />Risk and reality of uncoordinated services<br />confusion for users<br />inefficient use of resources<br />disempowerment of users and communities <br />failure to optimise impact<br />Recognition of need to tackle disadvantage in a relatively prosperous county <br />Ability to apply lessons learned in other locations<br />Increased public satisfaction<br />

  29. 29.
