Homelessness charity Centrepoint has launched a new campaign to ensure face-to-face careers advice is available to all under-25s.
Based on real interviews, the charity has just staged a live performance at the Old Vic Tunnels called ‘Nine Rooms,’ about the reality of youth homelessness, challenging the stereotype of the UK’s young people.
The Centrepoint Parliament, which speaks up for young people, is now hoping to secure enough support to prompt a discussion in Westminster on providing face-to-face careers advice for all young people, which it says is vital to minimising youth unemployment.
Chair of The Centrepoint Parliament, Sophia explains, “We are determined to restore face-to-face careers advice for under-25s. Young people are some of society’s most vulnerable members, but the most important to its future.”
