BARRIERS TO FURTHER EDUCATION

Discrimination against vulnerable young people - their choice is education or a roof over their head.

Those who start a college course after their 19th birthday are not eligible for any housing benefit support. Young people without family support have little choice; if they chose full -time education - so that they may get a better job - they will have no financial support; their only choice is to remain within the benefits system looking for jobs that don't exist.
( see gisda.org for more information.)

The government needs to change these benefit rules to give these young people an equal chance at education.
