Minister Praises PGL Care Leaver Scheme

15 Sep 2018

Minister for Family Support Justin Tomlinson recently visited the PGL Activity Centre at Marchants Hill in Hindhead to praise their support for the "See Potential" care leaver employment programme.



The "See Potential" campaign aims to help some of the 38,000 most vulnerable young people who have grown up in foster or care homes to find work.

PGL employs care leavers in a number of its UK holiday activity centres and staff are trained to provide the right support to help smooth the transition into employment, ensuring all staff have the best start at PGL, regardless of background. 

The Minister met staff on site who had come through the programme and praised PGL’s approach: 

“We’re encouraging businesses to do more to tap into the skills, experience and insight of a diverse workforce with our See Potential campaign and PGL is a great example of a business getting it right.”

PGL recruitment manager Paul Flitney said:

“We’re really proud to be recognised for our investment in our staff.“The real PGL difference is in our people – we know how to bring out the best in young people and that’s not just limited to our guests. For many young people who have left care, getting a job can feel like a daunting step. We provide a safe, friendly working environment, to help our staff get the best start and to thrive in employment with PGL.”
