Employers in Matlock given incentive to take on young people

Young people in Matlock are being given a helping hand into employment.

A new £1billion scheme has been set up to aid people aged 18 to 24 into the workplace.

The Youth Contract Scheme will offer incentives worth more than £2,275 for each young person that an employer offers a paid position to and will also create 250,000 work experience places.
