Covid-19’s devastation on London’s job market has been highlighted in the latest figures from the Mayor of London’s office.
A report from the Greater London Authority (GLA) Economics unit forecast economic output in the capital will fall by £44 billion and anticipate the largest fall in employment in over 20 years, with an additional loss of 350,000 jobs expected in 2021.
Areas identified as being at the highest risk include hospitality, retail, leisure and construction. This will disproportionately affect young people as they make up a large proportion of the work force in these sectors.
Adapting quickly to young people’s needs moving all the sessions online, Street League developed their ‘Head Body Future programme’ overnight and provided young people across the capital with the technical support they needed to access the sessions.
