“We can be the generation that no longer accepts that an accident of latitude determines whether a child lives or dies. But will we be that generation?” - BONO – U2
The truth is that even though Bono is talking on a global scale about latitudes and our place on the globe – the same can often be true about postcodes here in the UK determining the life chances of young people.
Worth Unlimited has a high and bold ambition and that is … to ensure that geography or postcodes will no longer be significant in determining the life chances of young people in the local communities where we work.
We believe new funding will be make a real and lasting difference to individual lives and bring much needed transformation to deprived communities for generations to come.
Just a few examples of what financial support can mean to young people and the communities we work in.
It has been suggested by Princes Trust that reducing youth unemployment by one percentage point could save over £2 million in terms of youth crime avoided. It is also known that the estimated total cost of youth crime for Great Britain is likely to be in excess of £1 billion.
We know that we are a relatively small organisation but we believe we make significant impact locally and we know that communities are being changed through our work. We believe that small investments are making a big difference.
