Findings from the national census of youth provision in England, reveal the large disparity in the amount and type of provision available to young people depending on where they live. The data suggests that there is twice as much youth provision in the most affluent areas as opposed to the most deprived areas, alongside 50% more buildings purpose-built for, or dedicated towards young people in affluent areas.
The Census was carried out May to July 2021, as part of a two-year programme of research and data analysis, on priority areas for young people and youth work. This is the first report written based on findings from the Census data, focusing on the methodology behind the National Youth Sector Census alongside a summary of early findings.
