Report that looks closely at the impact a father’s absence has on his children’s lives. The negative effects of a father's absence manifest in all kinds of ways; through anti-social behaviour and criminal activity, and sometimes through heavy drinking and drug use.

A qualitative study surveyed 48 young people from Addaction services in Liverpool, London and Derby. These young people were drawn from a range of culturally diverse backgrounds and social classes, and were all aged between 16 and 25. The group was evenly split between genders (26 being male, 22 female).

This review aimed to identify research on health promotion for young people in the areas of accident prevention, mental health, nutrition, physical activity, sexual health and substance abuse. Its purpose was to describe the needs and views of young people with respect to their health, examine the range of interventions undertaken, and make recommendations for future research.

The aim of this review is to examine critically the claim that the peer-delivered approach is a more appropriate and effective method of promoting the health of young people (aged 11 to 24 years) than more traditional approaches. This systematic review was published by EPPI-Centre in 2001 .Systematic reviews aim to find as much as possible of the research relevant to the particular research questions, and use explicit methods to identify what can reliably be said on the basis of these studies.

This review provided a summary of evidence to help develop, implement and evaluate interventions for promoting physical activity amongst young people. It had a particular focus on young people from socially excluded groups and on interventions targeting structural or environmental barriers to physical activity (e.g. poor access to facilities).
