Lewisham team began working with organizations and individuals in the UK, sending them information about the ET-NEETS project and initiating discussions on the theme of the project and the benefits it can bring. Most of our contacts are with organisations who work with young people in the field of democracy, supporting young people in decision making processes in different ways. As part of this work the issue of employment and access to opportunities is something that the young people talk about so many have projects around employability.
We also have contacts with other local governments and umbrella organisations like the Council of Europe and we have been talking to them about the project and how they can help spread the word and support it. We still have a way to go and need to build on these initial conversations to get the feedback and build the research.
