Young people are going to need help to get out and about again.

The Graeme Dingle Foundation has found a number of 14 to 24 year-olds are disengaging from their peers, education and society.

Many school students are in their rooms socialising online, leaving caregivers isolated and struggling to re-engage them.

The Foundation’s research manager, Julie Moore, told Mike Hosking this has been a worldwide and New Zealand problem for some time, even before Covid.

“Covid, of course, is obviously going to exacerbate the problem so they’re not going to automatically re-engage and this is something young people need help to do.”
