Young people's future health inquiry
A first-of-its-kind research and engagement project that aims to build an understanding of the influences affecting the future health of young people
Between the ages of 12 to 24 young people go through life-defining experiences and changes.
Most will aim to move through education into employment, become independent and leave home. This is also a time for forging key relationships and lifelong connections.
Today’s young people face opportunities and challenges that are very different to those experienced by their parents and carers, and from those they imagined themselves to be facing. This matters because these building blocks – a place to call home, secure and rewarding work, and supportive relationships– are the foundations of a healthy life.
The Young people's future health inquiry is a first-of-its-kind research and engagement project that aims to build an understanding of the influences affecting the future health of young people. If you’d like to receive news and updates from the inquiry by email, sign up below.
