Ep. 26 Caring for this generation of young people - Martina Kane, The Health Foundation

On this week’s episode of Public Sector Voices we are joined by Martina Kane, Policy and Engagement Manager, at The Heath Foundation. She is calling for young people’s future & current health to be taken seriously by eliminating stress and uncertainty surrounding work and housing. 

Martina explains how young people’s health is heavily influenced by the wider things that’s around them and why getting people off to the best possible start in life is so crucial. 

She also illustrates through her organisations research the barriers young people face when trying to find secure work and secure housing. 

Following Rishi Sunak’s implementation of the furlough scheme and focus on youth employment, Martina said it was welcomed but hopefully when the economy opens up again a lot of these young people can go back to their workplaces. 

She also discusses how London Youth reported a third of services might not reopen after the Covid-19 outbreak. 

This podcast will tell you all you need to know about ensuring young people are protected for the future with regards to health, work and housing.
