Addressing young people's employment challenges important for good health after pandemic

A new series of reports that focuses on the effects of Coronavirus on employment in Wales, has been published by Public Health Wales.

Young people, and those in precarious work have been identified as being especially vulnerable to employment changes caused by the pandemic, with mental wellbeing and struggles to find or keep work cited as major concerns.

Many young people are unaware of the support that is already available and how to access it, suggesting a greater need for organisations to engage with young people on a deeper level, in order to find solutions to the barriers they face for gaining good, fair employment –critical for people's good health and wellbeing.
