The focus of this year’s survey was to uncover what young people perceive to be the main barriers to success. The results revealed that academic ability, financial difficulty and a lack of job opportunities are believed to negatively affect a young person’s ability to achieve their goals in life.

• Alcohol and drugs were found to be an increasing concern
• Young people continue to report that coping with stress and school/study problems are top issues of concern
• Just over one in ten respondents indicated that they saw family responsibilities and physical or mental health as barriers to achieving their study/work goals.
