From the Youth Wellbeing Report

Between 20 July and 7 August 2018, ActionStation gathered the views of more than 1,000 young people (aged 12 - 24) and a handful of youth workers and policy experts.

Some research highlights are as follows:

  • Young people want better, more accessible mental health services, education and support specifically for young people.
  • Young people we spoke to highlighted economic insecurity, unaffordable housing, student debt and insecure low paid work as significant contributors to their anxiety and stress. Many want a kinder, fairer economy and meaningful secure work.
  • Young people want to see an end to oppression of all kinds - no more racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia or ableism.
