We’re very proud to have been involved in The Young Women’s Trust (YWT) recent Inquiry about the lives of young women who are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET.)
Contrary to popular belief, there are many more women than men in this position. Women are also, on average, NEET for longer.
YWT asked us at Community Research to conduct a series of group discussions with women who were either currently NEET or who had been in the past. We spoke both to young women and to some who had now moved on and could give us insight into the longer term consequences of being NEET as a young woman.
Our work has contributed to this fascinating and hard-hitting report.
This report will be followed in March 2015 with a final report including the Inquiry’s recommendations.
