Why we’re doing it
The new year is around the corner, this is a time for fresh starts and new opportunities. The aftermath of Covid-19 and the current cost-of-living crisis has taken a significant toll on young people and their employment prospects. Notably, the Prince’s Trust Class of Covid 2022 report has found that:
- Just over half of our young people agree the expected recession makes them more concerned for their job security.
- 33% no longer think they will achieve their career goals.
- 42% of those from lower income backgrounds do not think their job prospects will ever recover from the pandemic.
Our campaign will equip young people with new skills and opportunities to remain hopeful about their future careers in 2023!
