2,000 respondents to YMCA’s 'What Matters Most' research - BUDGET & Young People

2,000 surveyed for 'What Matters Most' research

With less than two weeks to go until the Budget, young people have told YMCA that a lack of access to jobs and quality education are their biggest concerns growing up in Britain in 2016.

In total, 40% of the 2,000 respondents to YMCA’s What Matters Most research highlighted job availability as their biggest worry, 
despite latest figures from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) showing moderate falls in unemployment.

In addition to this, a further 
36% highlighted the quality of their education and 
24% the cost of further education as their biggest concerns, reflecting the reality of how hard it is for young people to access opportunities and reach their potential in modern society.
