Talent Match

Greater Manchester Talent Match

Greater Manchester Talent Match was a Big Lottery-funded programme bringing together the private, public and voluntary sectors to support young people aged 18-24 who had been out of employment, education or training for twelve months or more and who need extra support to help them along their pathway to work. 

“Antz Junction has the best counsellors I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Supporting me through many difficult times, always listening to me and makes me feel heard”
