YOUTHSIGHT IN THE NEWS – YMCA RESEARCH SHOWS YOUNG BRITS WISH TO REMAIN IN EU

Posted on 18th February 2016 by Youth

YMCA ThumbnailOriginal new research by YouthSight for the YMCA has revealed that a total of 72% of 16 to 24-year-olds across England and Wales said the UK should remain in the EU when voters go to the polls this year. Just 11% said they were in favour of ‘Brexit’.

The findings were passed on a YouthSight poll of 2,005 people from across England and Wales. Support for remaining in the EU was at least 65% in each region.

Denise Hatton, Chief Executive of YMCA England, said: “Despite statistics showing that young people are less likely to vote than ever before, this survey shows that, not only do they care about politics, but also that they care strongly about the future of the UK in Europe.

The research was featured in The Telegraph, The Week  and The London Economic
