The Chilypep (Children and Young People’s Empowerment Project) CRF Support Fund is a grant for young people in Central Barnsley to assist them in breaking down barriers to work and further education. This could include; travel fair to and from interviews or training, accessing training opportunities and courses, or something as simple as interview clothes.

Chilypep are talking to young people from the central area of Barnsley to find out if they get the help and support they need to get the jobs, training or education they want. We’d also like to know if they have enough opportunities to build the skills and confidence they need to get there! We want to know what gets in the way, what makes it harder, and what would help. We’re also talking to the people who provide jobs, training and support, and will be working with them so they can make things easier when we know what young people need.  Everything you tell us will be in confidence, and no one will know your name or anything that will identify you. It will only take a few minutes to fill in our questionnaires.
