We supported all the young people who were participating in our programme throughout lockdown, with digital training and online sessions. We have now begun some face to face work and are able to move young people back into work placements – whilst remaining within the current government and NHS guidelines. We risk assess all work, to protect young people, the local businesses, families and communities where we work. For more information please contact your Project Coordinator or email head office who will direct your enquiry.

WorkingRite is the practical pathway to a job or apprenticeship.
Lasting an average of 16 weeks, our trainees learn on the job, alongside a mentor chosen from the workforce of that business to pass on what they know.
WorkingRite is a relationship-based model of learning. Quite simply designed to inspire young people to succeed:
after all… everyone remembers their first boss!
What We Do
WorkingRite helps young people get their foot in the door, regardless of their academic background or previous experience.
We believe not everything can be simulated in a classroom or rehearsed in tests.
Many important skills can only be learnt working side-by-side with an experienced adult – on the job, where it counts.
We therefore individually match young people to local businesses for work placements lasting up to six months.
Our trainees learn in a proper workplace, receive one-to-one mentoring, earn a weekly allowance
and are given the chance to prove themselves in the real world of work.
