Description:
This research was undertaken by the Children’s Research Centre (CRC), Trinity College Dublin (TCD) and the Northern Ireland Centre for Food and Health (NICHE) at the University of Ulster (UU) in response to safefood’s call for proposals to carry out an all-Ireland needs assessment of food and physical activityrelated health issues in alternative education and training settings. Nutrition and physical activity research with young people who are early school leavers (ESLs) is limited. Based on their demographic characteristics and on the results of school leaver surveys we suggest that ESLs are similar to other socio-economically marginalised groups at risk of poor health outcomes in terms of food poverty, poor nutrition, overweight and obesity and smoking. There was no single public database or directory in either jurisdiction that identified the range of sectors, organisations and individuals that provide services to ESLs.
