Youth voices: life, work and study in Northern Ireland

Young people’s voices and experiences are at the heart of this report, through results from a detailed survey about what would make Northern Ireland a better place to live, work and study. The findings from our survey of 14–25 year olds centre on four themes: community, study, work and the future. They provide a valuable window into the diverse experiences, challenges, perspectives and aspirations of young people living in Northern Ireland.

Results from this survey provide further evidence that young people in Northern Ireland today still feel the impact of the Troubles, and still live in a deeply divided society. These issues sit alongside, and often reinforce, challenges about education, jobs and health.
