Youth Select Committee 2024

The impact of the cost of living crisis on young people

A report released last month by the British Youth Council highlights the negative impacts the cost-of-living crisis is having on young people, including on their physical and mental health.

Clair Swales, PAVO CEO, made a submission to the Youth Select Committee 2024 on behalf of PAVO and Powys’ Child Poverty Taskforce. 

She said: “I am pleased the voices of young people from Powys are included in this report and will be heard by the UK Government. 

“It is vital that young people have a say in policies which affect their lives.”
