Why focus on this issue? Our research:

Our research, conducted in partnership with YouGov in December 2017, shows that we must do more to provide positive activities and opportunities for young people – they can make all the difference to the direction their lives take. Positive opportunities can motivate and inspire young people to achieve their potential, reducing the risk of falling into crime and antisocial behaviour and inspiring them towards rewarding and successful futures. The statistics below make it all too clear why our work is needed. Please help us to make a difference.

0% of young people feel they need more support from society to help them to achieve their potential.
0% of young people believe that a lack of positive opportunities puts young people at an increased risk of falling into crime and antisocial behaviour.
