'The space in-between': future policy directions for youth at risk

Young people who do not transition successfully from school to further education or employment are the most vulnerable demographic in society. High youth unemployment rates and over representation in under-employment means young people aged 15-24 who are disengaged from education and are not in training or employment, face a bleak future of financial distress, increased likelihood of health and mental health issues, long term welfare dependence and increased likelihood of involvement in the criminal justice system.
