Private Equity Foundation joins forces with think tank 30/04/09

Venture philanthropy fund, the Private Equity Foundation, has joined with think-tank, the Institute for Public Policy Research (ippr), to offer policy makers and practitioners interested in young people not in education, employment or training (NEET) access to a new quarterly newsletter.

The NEET tracker will provide a digest and commentary on new research, policy and data related not only to the NEET population but also to the wider policy context such as education, health, crime and employment.

The aim of the newsletter is to provide useful data and learning materials and to anticipate emerging trends and issues. It seeks to act as an additional resource for delivery organisations, who may not have the capacity to work through data and policy documents themselves and will provide space for comments and wider debate.

Shaks Ghosh, chief executive of the Private Equity Foundation, said: “With record numbers of young people not in education, employment or training and Alistair Darling’s budget announcement that he is determined to stop the recession claiming them as a ‘lost generation’, the NEET issue is taking centre stage.

"However, with all the pressures facing practitioners it’s immensely difficult for them to keep abreast of the latest statistics, policies, new ideas and opinion. This tracker is designed to help them do just that. We hope that the whole ‘NEET community’ will benefit from ippr’s work.”
