Survey of UK adults on attitudes towards opening school facilities for young people during the school holidays.
- Around three quarters of UK adults disagree there are enough youth facilities for children and young people (74%), while a similar proportion (77%) say this is contributing to increasing youth crime levels.
- The survey results also indicate an overwhelming level of support among UK adults for opening school facilities during school holidays to engage children and young people in sports and physical activities. Approaching nine in ten (85%) support this proposal, while more than half (54%) strongly support this.
- Respondents with children aged 16 or younger are more likely to support opening school facilities during the school holidays to engage children and young people in sports and physical activities than those without (88% vs. 84%).
