FOR VULNERABLE YOUNG PEOPLE, THE CRISIS HAS ONLY JUST BEGUN

The full impact of the Coronavirus crisis is yet to come. The ‘cost’ of lockdown will be record levels of youth unemployment just as rent and credit amnesties come to an end. Family breakdown is also on the rise, just as many young people in low income jobs are about to lose what little security they have.

How your vital regular gift could help through the coming months:

  • It will help us answer a huge increase in calls to our Helpline from vulnerable young people in urgent need of support.
  • It will help us provide essential advice and services to young people who face an increasingly desperate situation.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT MORE THAN EVER

The pandemic has meant suspending the fundraising events that contribute millions to our services. As our income declines, the demand for our services rises, and now we face our toughest year ever. Young people urgently need our ongoing support. Your regular gift could be life-changing for a vulnerable young person in the difficult months ahead.

Our toughest year lies ahead

  • We are already seeing an increase of around 50% in calls to our Helpline from young people in crisis with nowhere else to turn, and the demand is set to rise.
  • The long-term impact of Coronavirus is yet to come: over 300,000 young people are expected to lose their jobs. A sharp spike in evictions and homelessness is inevitable.
  • Our services are stretched to the limit already and our funding is declining – yet for many vulnerable young people we are the only lifeline left. We cannot fail them.

 

“When the country is in economic decline, young people are one of the groups that are always hit the hardest. Their difficulties will only increase as this crisis continues in the coming months and years. Many thousands of vulnerable young people will suffer from being jobless and homeless, so we must keep them safe. That’s what we’ve always done and will continue to do, but we can’t do this without support or resources. Starting a monthly gift from today could really help us make a difference.”
