Research summary

Meeting the needs of young people requires up-to-date information on what they think is important and the life-style they adopt. This report offers an opportunity for some of the young people in the London borough of Newham to provide that information.

Their life in school, their work and leisure time and their aspirations for adult life are covered. Their views on a variety of health related issues are explored - drugs, sex education, support systems and diet are some of the areas discussed.

These findings should be of interest to those working in a variety of organisations - health, education, social services and voluntary bodies - both at the policy making and grass-roots level.
