Passing Time

This is a report about young people and communities. It explores how young people talk about their community and the activities and support they want to see provided out of school. It starts by focusing on young people in just one neighbourhood and ends by using their experiences to look at how well teenagers are provided for across England. It argues that providing good services and activities for teenagers is vital for building strong communities that feel safe, vibrant and supportive for everyone.
