A meeting of full council on Wednesday saw an extension to the Wolves at Work scheme being given the go-ahead.

In a report to members, deputy chief executive Mark Taylor said: “The launch of a new Wolves at Work 18-24 programme is a series of targeted interventions which puts our young people at the centre of activity and urgently delivers the change needed to give them the opportunities for secure sustainable employment, apprenticeships, education or training.

“An initial £3 million budget, which comes from a combination of the Recovery Reserve and Covid Emergency Grant, has been agreed to deliver this programme and create opportunities for our young people.”
