What is Young Lives, Young Futures?
Young Lives, Young Futures, is a major national 5-year study being carried out by a team of researchers at King’s College London and the Edge Foundation. It is focussed on the 15–20-year-old age group and has a particular emphasis on engaging with the perspectives of young people themselves, including those who are more marginalised and whose voices are not often heard in policymaking. By helping policymakers develop greater insight into young people’s lives, the research will help ensure that policy is more sensitive to the complexity and diversity of young people’s experiences and better placed to bring about more equitable education-to-work transitions for young people not taking the university route.
