Press release – Youth Voice Census 2020

“Our annual Youth Voice Census allows young people to share their voice on the experiences and services available to them throughout education and their next steps. Last year over 3,000 young people told us their story, enabling us to build a picture of how young people are navigating the transition from education to employment. We have been able to share what is working and what improvements need to be made with partners across the sector and with UK Government policy makers.

Youth voice is vital to ensuring services really work for our young people, and this is their chance to be heard”.

Laura-Jane Rawlings, CEO of Youth Employment UK
