The following statement has been issued on behalf of the Lancashire Resilience Forum.

Burnley leads the way in job support for young people

Lancashire’s first face-to-face Youth Hub has opened in Burnley, giving unemployed youngsters the tailored support they need to get a job, thanks to a brand-new partnership between Jobcentre Plus and Burnley Council.

The hub, known as Thrive, is based at the offices of the Calico Group in Croft Street and will give 16-24-year-olds appointments with specialist youth employability coaches, who can help them learn and develop new skills to help them into work. They will also support their health and wellbeing needs to build resilience.

New Mayor of Burnley appointed

Councillor Mark Townsend has been appointed Mayor of Burnley 2021/22.

He stepped down as leader of the Labour group on the council to be able to take up the position as the borough’s First Citizen.

He was appointed during a ceremony at the Mechanics Theatre, Burnley. The event was revised from its usual format to take into account Covid restrictions. A wider Civic event will be held later in the year.
