Today’s event introduces a brap the findings of a survey of 500 young people into youth unemployment.

Key message: there is nothing natural about disadvantage ad things need to change – We are used to things staying the same and this is why we need to draw a line in the sand and not be saying the same thing about Birmingham in 10 years time.
