The Prince's Trust annual Youth Index shows how NEETs (Not in education or training) are significantly less happy across all areas of their lives. It gauges young people's well-being across a range of areas from family life to physical health.
- The report reveals that while 27 per cent of young people in work feel down or depressed always or often, this increases to almost half (48 per cent) among NEETs.
- More than one in five, or 22%, said they did not have someone to talk to about their problems while they were growing up, with Neets significantly less likely to have had someone to confide in
