Resumé

In recent years, concerns have been expressed at EU and national level that the combined stresses arising from school, parental expectations and societal pressures can make the transition to adulthood difficult for young people – with the risk of a long-lasting negative impact. One way of easing the transition is to provide appropriate information and support services during these critical life-changing years. However, it appears that not all young people have access to such services. This report describes the characteristics of the young people who face most difficulties in accessing social and health services, the types of services most relevant to them and the main challenges they face in accessing information and support services. It also looks at what service providers can do to ensure they reach young people in need of their support and presents innovative examples of how to tackle inequalities in access to services.

    Uligheder i unges adgang til informations- og støttetjenester

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    I de senere år er der på EU-plan og nationalt plan udtrykt bekymring over, at kombinationen af presset i skolen, forventningerne fra forældrene og det samfundsmæssige pres kan gøre overgangen til voksenlivet vanskelig for unge — med risiko for langvarige negative konsekvenser. En måde at lette overgangen på er at yde passende informations- og støttetjenester i disse kritiske livsforanderlige år. Det ser imidlertid ikke ud til, at alle unge har adgang til sådanne tjenester. Denne rapport beskriver karakteristikaene ved de unge, der har mest vanskeligt ved at få adgang til social- og sundhedsydelser, de tjenester, der er mest relevante for dem, og de største udfordringer, de står over for med hensyn til adgang til informations- og støttetjenester. Den ser også på, hvad tjenesteudbydere kan gøre for at sikre, at de når ud til unge, der har brug for deres støtte, og fremlægger innovative eksempler på, hvordan man kan tackle uligheder i adgangen til tjenester.
