Shop My Town Poll as seen on WIN News Toowoomba

Over the past few weeks, we have taken a survey of parents in regional areas to see how they felt about their children’s future.

The results were startling – indicating that parents see no future for their children in regional Australia.

Parents across QLD answered key questions to determine their confidence in the opportunities available for their children.

Over half of all parents surveyed said they felt there was no future for their children to stay in their town, and they would have to leave to pursue study or work.

However the same number of parents believed that the regional experience was richer for their children than their city counterparts, with a quarter of parents sacrificing financially to give their children a country upbringing.
