Youth Unemployment, Labour Market Programmes and Health

summary:

The government’s New Deal for Young People (NDYP) aims to help unemployed young people move back into work. It is one of many non-health programmes that might be expected to have an impact on the health of people who are targeted for help. This report reviews findings from recent British and international research on the relationship between unemployment and health among young people. The review was commissioned by the Department of Health in order to inform an evaluation of the health impacts of the New Deal programmes.
