With more stands, workshops and presentations than last year’s excellent event, the remit has been widened in response to feedback to include Health, Housing and Social Activities. Along with Employment, these are arranged in four Zones.

This event will demonstrate the various routes young people can take into education, employment, training, independent travel,  independent living, health support, money and benefits, social life and more.

Schools will be bringing groups of students aged from 14 to 19.  Young people 14 to 25 years old, at out of borough schools or colleges, parents, carers, professionals, employers, teachers, providers and trainers are all welcome to join us for this exciting event.

Please use Eventbrite to book your free place, which includes a light lunch:

If you are a provider, exhibition spaces are free, please contact the organisers by email on to book your stall and lunch.

This event follows on from 2016 and 2017's hugely successful Get Set GO! events.   We have a range of exhibitors covering a wide offer of provision and services.
