The NEET Report Fenland.
  • A Public Perception.
  • Until 3-4 years ago the general public had little knowledge of the problem.
  • Several reports and research findings have now been brought into the media spotlight.
the neet report fenland7
The NEET Report Fenland.
  • Press articles and reports point to a growing problem in some societal groups of young people ‘withdrawing’ from society.
the neet report fenland8
The NEET Report Fenland.
  • Robert Winnett writing in The Sunday Times in 2005 highlights the size and potential cost of the problem in the UK.
  • The article quotes the government statistics of almost 10% of 16-24 year olds or 1.1million young people who form what the author calls the ‘new underclass’ of NEET.
  • He reminds readers of the DfES report that suggests that each young person dropping out at 16 will potentially cost the taxpayer an average of £97000 over their lifetime.
  • He also underlines the report’s findings that the group are more likely to become criminalized, become involved with drugs, and suffer ill health than the population as a whole.

The NEET Report Fenland.
  • The thrust of these reports highlights the growing concern in government and beyond about a potentially ‘lost generation’ of young people who at best move between unemployment and low paid and very insecure jobs and at worst drift into spending their time on the margins of society with bleak prospects of any significant improvement in their lives or those of their children and families.
