Investing in the next generation

Region | 

This pamphlet brings together a collection of ideas from thought-leaders to work together to make a significant impact on the lives of young people, by investing in the next generation.

Charities and social enterprises across the country are working tirelessly to deliver interventions to young people that need it most - such as those involved in crime, affected by mental health problems, or unable to get a job. 

But despite their crucial work, the scale of the challenge remains vast. With 60,000 chilldren at risk of going into care and 700,000 young people currently unemployed, there is a critical need to look at ways we can scale-up early intervention and prevention, while examining how social investment can provide support.

The Conservative party manifesto promises to work with the charity and voluntary sector to deliver innovative public services, and to scale-up measures focusing on youth unemployment. We must catalyse the support of government to encourage key stakeholders to take action. 

This pamphlet brings together a collection of ideas from thought-leaders, calling on the Government, the expertise of charities and social enterprises, and the financial commitment from social investors, to work together to make a significant impact on the lives of young people, by investing in the next generation.
