Prince Charles called yesterday to take measures to prevent the crisis of the virus to have an effect “devastating” on the future of young people.
The prince of Wales has warned that it could harm “the prospects of a generation”. In a message for the Prince’s Trust, he offered the youth his “sincere wishes” for the crisis.
He said: “young people have more need than ever of support. Their future is at stake. But together, we can prevent this crisis define the outlook of a generation. “
Prince Charles has warned that youth unemployment could lead to “a poverty of self-esteem, homelessness, or worse”
The Prince’s Trust – which aims to help young people find work, training and studies – was founded by Charles in 1976, the year in which Great Britain had to be bailed out by the IMF.
“In times of economic difficulties, it is often the young who are hit the hardest and we know that many young people under 25 years of age working in sectors such as hospitality and tourism have made the charges,” said Charles in the Daily Telegraph.
“We also know the difficulties encountered by the disruption of education, loss of jobs, entry-level and the rise in unemployment.
He added: “I know too well that youth unemployment can cause a terrible downward spiral, affecting mental health and leading to challenges such as poverty of self-esteem, homelessness, or worse.
“When I founded my confidence 44 years ago, the problems faced by the youth due to unemployment and a lack of support were significant. Now, I am afraid that these problems are gone from serious to potentially devastating.
The Trust manages a support service for antivirus for youth and features of employment sites and an emergency fund to help.
Young people are encouraged to volunteer in their region to help respond to the crisis. Those who feel anxious and lonely because of the lock are offered a support.
