  • 38% think that the UK’s reputation around the world has been damaged as a result of Brexit. One in ten (12%) say they think it has improved and a quarter (23%) think that it hasn’t changed.
  • Of the issues that 11-16 year-olds rated most important for the future of the UK – “making sure people have access to doctors and hospitals when they are unwell” (36%) and “keeping people safe from terrorism” (34%) were rated highest.
