Key Information

CXK, in partnership with East Sussex County Council and Hastings Borough Council, has launched a young-person-driven research project to identify and understand the factors contributing to the persistently high levels of NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) young people in Hastings.

Funded through a Connected Futures grant by the Youth Futures Foundation, the research project will recruit a group of 10 Hastings young people – training and supporting them to become peer to peer researchers who will connect with other young adults in Hastings to listen to, and record, their experiences to discover the root causes of the disadvantages young people face around employability – with the ultimate aim of informing system change.



The research group will explore:

  • The barriers NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) young people face.
  • Rates of school suspension and absence
  • The experiences of young people with challenging family circumstances
  • Appropriate, tailored prevision post-16 that addresses the needs of our young people
  • The experiences young people face with prejudice, discrimination and hostility
  • A coherent approach that enabled young people to succeed and flourish
  • Plus, many more areas…
