Youth loneliness


UK Youth have published a report looking at the role of local youth organisations in addressing youth loneliness, focusing on the perspective of youth workers. Findings from an online survey with 152 youth workers show that: 82% of youth workers agreed that loneliness is an issue for the young people they work with; 73% of youth workers disagreed with the statement that young people actively seek help. Recommendations include the development of a youth sector-wide strategy for youth loneliness.
