We are amplifying the stories and views of disadvantaged young people to engage, inform and assist those in power to create a more equal society.
We heard stories of resilience, creativity, and frustration that government does not understand what low-income young people need to thrive.
In response, we have published a new Youth Manifesto to hold the government to account ahead of the 2021 Autumn Budget and beyond.
We also detail how employers can take action to help build a more equal society.
We face a crisis in education. Now is the time to invest and not shy away from the reality of lost time in the classroom.
Young people do not believe they are prioritised or that government understands their needs.
Everyone deserves the opportunity to pursue their dream career. They need to have access to work experience and be able to afford to get there.
Our data shows higher-income young people are more likely to consider an apprenticeship than low-income young people. Higher wages are vital to ensure apprenticeships are open to all.
Young people need digital tools to thrive in education and at work.
