Young People Living in Rural and Remote Areas

Young people living in rural and remote areas can be faced with extra pressures in many ways. Many maybe expected to leave their community to gain further education, some may not afford education, or some people may not get to get a education. Some resources such as access to the internet, and technology may not be easily obtained due to large geographical area or the cost. Young people may not feel comfortable accessing health services or just may not be able to get to their local doctor. Expectations of family and friends may also place increased pressure on young people living in rural and remote areas. Young people are also faced with barriers such as transport. Public transport and affordable transport in rural and remote areas is often non existent, times not suitable or unreliable.
