RECENTLY, there has been promising news that the percentage of Furness young people not in employment, education or training has fallen significantly in comparison with past years. Compared to the figure of 5.4 per cent in September 2012 and 4.22 per cent in September 2013, only 4.04 per cent of young people in Furness were classed as Neet last month. SARAH WILLIAMS, Inspira’s area manager in Furness, says these figures can be further improved and describes how to access information about local job or training opportunities.
