People under the age of 25 are ‘struggling to cope’ with everyday life, says the Prince’s Trust.  Their recent survey 

claims that one in ten young people are now struggling to deal with day-today life.

Over 2000 16-25 year olds were surveyed by prince’s trust across UK.  They have discovered that those who are 

jobless and out of school are the most discontented.  Due to this they are the most unhappy, these are the 

people who are likely to have grown up without anyone to talk to and converse their issues with.

“I used to apply for jobs but after getting knocked back, it hit my confidence. I’d wake up and just not know what 

to do with the 24 hours in the day”, says Leon White, 24.  He is currently living with his family but his father passed 

away ten years ago and he left school without receiving any qualifications.  He dreams of a career in music, but 

has only recently been able to secure a full-time job in a hotel, after taking a hospitality training course.

The survey indicated that almost three out of ten people that were questioned said they felt their career prospects 

had been permanently damaged by the recession.

Government said they are not satisfied with the rate of employment while the level of unemployment is at its lowest 

since 2009.

A spokesman from the Department for Work and Pensions said: “Youth unemployment has fallen recently, and 

excluding full-time students, there are now 626,000 unemployed 16-24 year olds – the lowest figure since early 2009. 

But we are not complacent about the scale of the challenge we still face.

“Through our Youth Contract we’re offering nearly 500,000 work experience placements, wage incentives and 

apprenticeships over the next three years to help young people gain the skills and experience needed to get a job.”
