Inequalities in the access of young people to information and support services - Executive summary

Young men and women are the future of European societies. However, there are concerns at EU and national levels that the combined stresses from school, expectations from parents, and peer and societal pressures can create challenging transitions to adulthood and have a long-lasting impact. There are also concerns about inequalities of opportunities and resources, including those for coping with social or health problems. To reduce inequalities, ensuring access to key services is vital. This report sets out to review inequalities in young people’s access to information and support services and how these inequalities can be overcome. It focuses on the 12–24 age group; where possible, information is provided separately for ages 12–17 and 18–24.
