Young people are being ignored in the Brexit negotiations. It is a policy they didn’t want, that risks their future, and they are likely to be disproportionately affected by as the economy and jobs take a hit, higher education loses European funding, and the opportunities to study and learn abroad are taken away from them.
Young people need a liferaft in this Brexit storm and the Green Party is committed to building them one.
We will scrap the tuition fees that put so many off studying for a degree. We will reinstate Higher Education Maintenance Grants to ensure that those from the poorest backgrounds are not blocked from attending university. And we will make sure that Brexit does not have a disastrous impact on young people’s education by creating a UK equivalent of the EU Higher Education Funding which looks set to be scrapped.
We are raising money to elect a Green representative for Portsmouth. Go to crowdfunder.co.uk/help-elect-a-green-in-portsmouth to give what you can to support us and help elect a Green in Portsmouth!

The Portsmouth Green Party will receive a £30 donation from Good Energy for every new gas or electricity customer and £50 for every new dual-fuel customer.
