Young People on their own
We're working hard on the production of our once-annual reports following the retirement of David McGeorge last year, but we're realising how much work he used to put in!
But we've compiled all the aggregate data sets, and have produced most of the tables, and have had a peek at what the results are telling us.
|2015||Year 8||20,850||Year 10||16,909||Overall||37,759|
|2016||Year 8||23,840||Year 10||18,894||Overall||42,734|
We have in recent years had some concerns about the emotional wellbeing of young people. Which prompts the question: what support do these young people have?
There is a key question which might indicate how much support is available to young people:
How many adults can you trust?
Not all local authority surveys used these questions, so the sample size drops.
|2015||No trusted adult||Year 8||7%||Year 10||10%||Overall||8%||N=11,316|
|2016||No trusted adult||Year 8||6%||Year 10||9%||Overall||7%||N=20,931|
