In December 2015 the Flood Awareness Wales team at Natural Resources Wales commissioned ERS Ltd to undertake a review of evidence and primary research looking at the value of engaging young people in order to increase community flood resilience.

Up to this point we had focused engagement activities on children of school age and adults at risk of flooding. We acknowledged that there was a gap in the understanding of awareness, perception and attitudes towards flood risk in the 16-25 age group (referred to as ‘young people’ throughout this report).

This executive summary report presents the findings of the evidence review carried out in December 2015 and January 2016, and a series of focus groups with young people aged between 16-25 across Wales, which took place in February and March 2016.
