“The divide that has opened up isn’t about class, it’s about age.” Author and activist @OwenJones84 says that while the Labour Party has had increasing youth support in the last few years, it has “become a fringe party among pensioners” #Newsnight
The unemployment rate is higher in low-income and lower middle income countries for youth with advanced educational levels, the International Labour Organisation has said
It was a pleasure welcoming UK youth climate strikers and to parliament. Young people will be the most affected by climate change - seeing them take charge of their future is inspiring. Labour's committed to working with young people campaigning to save our planet.
The Tories have slashed £1 billion from youth services and over 750 youth centres have closed. As Youth Work Week begins, I promise Labour will fix the Tory crisis in youth services - as we make sure every young person gets the support they need to fulfil their potential. #YWW19
Under the spending on youth services has been cut by 52% and 600 youth clubs have closed. The next Labour government will ensure that youth services support our young people and tackle the causes of crime.
The Tories have slashed £1 billion from youth services. Our young people deserve better than this. Our young people deserve a Labour Government that will invest in them and their future. Agree? ?
After a decade of cuts, thousands of youth workers have lost their jobs and youth services have been devastated. You can’t trust Boris Johnson and the Tories with the futures of young people. Labour will invest in and rebuild vital youth services. #YWW19
With each young person we only have one chance to get it right. Labour will fix the crisis in our youth services by supporting and empowering young people.
The £1 billion in Tory cuts to youth services mean that too many young people have nowhere to go, nothing to do and no one to help them with their problems. Labour will invest in young people.
