Press release

Youth Employment UK’s Youth Voice Census has launched for 2019. This annual survey is a temperature check of how young people aged 14-24 are feeling on a range of issues relating to their transition from education to employment.

Youth voice is at the heart of everything we do at Youth Employment UK. This survey allows young people to share their opinions on the issues facing them and their experiences of the services on offer, enabling us to build a picture of how young people are navigating the transition from education to employment. Last year 1,498 young people shared their views and since then we have been working with partners and policy makers to share what is working well and what could be improved.

It is important that we hear from the widest cohort of young people so we can provide a detailed picture of the youth population and therefore your support in sharing the survey link with your networks is very helpful.
