Increased travel costs will stop our young people’s access to education and leisure

Increased travel costs will stop our young people’s access to education and leisure

The number of young people in High Peak becoming listed as NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) is already on the increase, so it’s vital that the travel subsidy - see http://www.sourceofthepeak.co.uk/view/Getting_around/Buses/B_line/ )
is maintained so our young people can choose to go to college, find work and enjoy the leisure facilities outside their limited rural environment.
We’re already losing out on the Wheels to Work scheme - see
http://www.derbyshirercc.org.uk/work_w2w_funders.htm
which won’t include funding for High Peak as from 1st April 2011.
What chance do youngsters have to improve their situations if we cut off their access to affordable travel?
