The Ideas from Europe conference was held at Sadler's Wells on 20th March 2013. We were happy to welcome groups from Austria and Italy to our Shape-led conference, to share their knowledge about tackling youth unemployment.

The event looked at the projects run by Shape's Employment, Leadership and Youth Services team over the last three years and the work to be done going forward.

It also addressed the need to ensure that young disabled people do not suffer the negative effects of unemployment that can lead to long-term worklessness later in life.
