One in four young people don’t feel that their lives are under control

on January 10, 2017

The Prince’s Trust ORG has launched a survey that reveals that more than a quarter of young people in UK (28%) don’t feel in control of their lives and are concerned about job prospects, self-confidence and recent political events.

This national survey, based on the answers of 2,215 young people aged 16 to 25, show how this feeling is related to different causes. Most of them (45%) claim to feel stressed about body image, 37% feel concerned about how to cope at work or school and 12% claim they don’t know anyone who ‘really cares’ about them.

Lucy, a 21 year old art student at Birmingham City University, agrees with the information shared in this survey and adds that “Young people are too focused on how they looked when they should be more concerned about politics and their studies, something that really will have an impact in our future”.
