Next Gen Health and Care
Nurturing the next generation of health and social care talent
Make a difference. Work in health and social care
Next Gen Health and Care is an initiative set up by Norfolk and Waveney Health and Care partnership, in collaboration with The Prince’s Trust, and the Department of Health & Social Care. The purpose of this initiative is to inspire the ‘next generation’ of 16-30 year olds to enter a career within health and social care.
Our ambition in 2021-22 is to support 75 individuals across Norfolk and Waveney into health and social care employment.
Happy healthy people providing excellent compassionate care
Next Gen Health and Care offers 1-to-1 support to anyone aged 16-30 in a variety of ways, such as:
- Career planning (looking at the variety of pathways available to you)
- Introductions to employers (opportunities to meet NHS / CARE employers)
- Application assistance (support with writing and checking your applications)
- Interview preparation (advice and guidance when preparing for an interview)

In partnership with the Prince’s Trust
It all began in 1976, when HRH The Prince of Wales had a bold idea. Having completed his duty in the Royal Navy, His Royal Highness became dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged young people in the UK. So far The Prince’s Trust has helped over 1million young people!
As the UK’s leading youth charity, and a long standing contributor to the promotion of health and social care careers, The Department of Health and Social Care awarded The Prince’s Trust with an ambition contract to support 10,000 young people into health and social care employment by 2024/25. Through Next Gen Health and Care, we aim to lead on this ambition across Norfolk and Waveney.
