Özet

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.

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

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    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.
