North of Tyne Mayor Jamie Driscoll said: “When it comes to solving unemployment there is not a one size fits all solution. In the real-world, there are lots of reasons why people are not in work.

“We have funded 24 projects which will offer tailored support to people from all walks of life, helping them to get the skills they need to earn a decent wage and live a better life."
