The on-going economic recession in Britain has taken a negative toll on the health of youngsters after a new survey carried out among unemployed youth found that over a quarter of them believe their futures have been permanently damaged by the economic downturns.

The survey was carried out by researchers at Prince's Trust charity who were creating the fifth annual Youth Index.

The researchers found that over 27 percent believed their future prospects have been permanently damaged, over 19 percent thought that they had no future and over 42 percent of those not in employment, education or training (NEETs) thought that they have been permanently left behind in life due to the economic problems.

"It is clear that the recession is leaving a damaging legacy for our young people - their prospects have suffered and so has their confidence. We know that youth unemployment can leave long-term scars. But, with the right support, these scars do not need to be permanent", the chief executive of the organization, Martina Milburn said.
