Prepared for life, not just exams

The Youth Endowment Fund has published Children, violence and vulnerability 2022  – a new report looking into young people’s experiences of violence.The YEF surveyed over 2,000 teenage children, aged 13 to 17, to find out about their experiences and perceptions of crime and violence.The findings show how violence – and the fear of violence – is shaping children’s lives in ways we previously hadn’t understood.

  • 14% of children said that they’ve been victims of violence in the past 12 months.
  • 39% said they’d been directly affected by violence, either as a victim or witness.
  • 55% said they’d seen real life violence on social media.
  • 65% said they’d changed their behaviour to keep themselves safe from violence.
  • And 14% said they’d been absent from school in the last 12 months because they felt they would be unsafe.
