Businesses helping young people gain employment will be recognised under a new award scheme.

The Investors in Young People Awards are designed to help 13 to 24-year-olds in Epping Forest improve their career prospects by recognising firms offering employment and work experience opportunities.

The initiative has been organised by the Youth Employment Strategy (YES), which has worked with around 40 businesses over its two-year existence.

The winners will be announced in November at a ceremony where Epping Forest MP Eleanor Laing will speak.
