London - Young people are becoming disconnected from their communities and families, a study suggests.
Many are drawn to social media stars as their role models instead of to their own parents.
The findings from the Prince’s Trust will raise concerns about a generation of youngsters turning their backs on society.
Its survey of more than 3 000 people aged 11 to 30 revealed that 45 percent do not regard their parents as role models.
This increases to 49 percent among young men and to 62 percent for those not in employment, education or training.
