Many young people in the UK are facing a tough future. It is estimated that there will be 3.5 million children living in poverty by 2020 – that’s more than 1 in 4. Around 1 million young people are not in employment, education or training (NEET) – at least 1 in 7. And each year around 10,000 vulnerable 16-18 year olds exit the care system.
For those struggling with homelessness, unemployment or a lack of opportunities, the challenges of a rapidly changing world are, quite simply, magni?ed. Over 50% of homeless young people have been excluded from school, 40% have experienced abuse at home and 33% self-harm. A third of homeless young people have also been in care. Over a third of care leavers are NEET, and only 6% of care leavers go into Higher Education.
Stuart is working in collaboration with Clyde Shopping Centre to help raise funds and awareness for LandAid by cycling from Turkey through Greece and Italy finishing at the Italian Alps on the boarder of Switzerland and France over 1400 miles if you want to help us raise funds for this great cause please log on to https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/stuartcarmichael1 and sponsor Stuart Carmichael.
