Lead officer:  John Thompson

Decision status:  Recommendations Approved

Notice of proposed decision first published: 15/10/2021

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
Vaccination Services covered under this programme offer an enhancement to existing vaccination provision and are intended to significantly reduce the size of the unvaccinated eligible population. The enhanced service is required as existing vaccination provision is focused on emerging cohorts (ages 12-15) and booster vaccinations. Therefore, this provision will aim to reduce the levels of individuals who remain unvaccinated

Wolves at Work 18-24 - Youth Employment New!

Decision maker:  Cabinet

Decision:   20 Oct 2021

Lead officer:  Julie Obada, Maria Smith

Decision status:  Recommendations Approved

Notice of proposed decision first published: 08/10/2021

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
The City of Wolverhampton currently has the highest unemployment rate for 18-24 year olds in the UK at 13.5%, meaning there are 2,795 young people claiming benefits (NOMIS August 2021).
Although this has historically been a significant issue in our city - exacerbated by the pandemic – the Council is committed to actively reducing the levels of youth unemployment, especially as city employers are reporting high levels of vacancies. With the end of the furlough scheme likely to push youth unemployment even higher, urgent intervention and action is required from a range of national, regional and local partners.
The Cabinet report will seek authority for the council to lead on developing a comprehensive programme of targeted intervention to support young people aged 18 to 24, currently claiming benefits into sustainable employment, apprenticeships or training. This will aim to tackle inequalities in the city given big disparities between different wards - the highest youth
