Since 2012 young people from disadvantaged backgrounds have become less likely to succeed at school, this correlates with falling investment in youth services across the country. What should the youth sector be doing to close the gap? We look at the social mobility challenge, share impact data and present different approaches being tried in the youth sector to address the problem, from targeted interventions to open access programmes.
The session Chair will be Anna Smee, CEO of UK Youth. The panel includes Street League CEO Matt Stevenson-Dodd, Jim Gregory from Brent Park Animal Centre, and The Resolution Foundation‘s Laura Gardiner.
