The Centre for Crime and Justice Studies (CCJS) has produced two briefings as part of the Transition to Adulthood (T2A) Alliance: Young Adults in Transition: Local Matters, National Implications and Young Adults in Transition: The Local Picture in National Context.
These briefings explore the notion that where a young adult (aged 18-24) is born has a major impact on their life chances and outcomes. The briefings compare data on this age group across 21 parliamentary constituencies (in London, West Mercia and Birmingham), and looks in particular at outcomes such as the numbers who go to university, full time work or long term unemployment.
The research enables the reader to see what happens to most young people in a constituency area and how their circumstances differ between areas. The briefing explores the national policy challenges facing young adults in different areas, assesses the impact of the T2A pilots on their local constituencies and highlights commissioning implications for the delivery of effective services.
CCJS is an independent public interest charity that engages with the worlds of research and policy, practice and campaigning. It is a member of the Transition to Adulthood Alliance.
