A third of young people are anxious about their future

Nearly a third of young people say they have become more anxious about their future since the recession started three years ago.

A report commissioned by the volunteering charity CSV suggests that 18 to 24-year-olds were feeling more isolated from their communities since the summer riots that gripped English cities earlier this year.

Jason Turner is a senior manager at the charity and told Radio 5 live Morning Reports why we need to listen to young people.
