Charities Aid Foundation release a report on UK Charitable Giving trends, including findings on giving by 16-24 year old.

The report states:

“certain causes capture the imagination of young people more than older people. Those aged 16-24 were more likely to support children or young people (32%) than those 65+ and this has increased from 23% in 2017 to overtake ‘physical and mental health charities’ and become the most popular cause amongst the 16-24 age group.”
