Those commissioning and delivering services for young people.
Positive for Youth sets out all the Government's policies for 13-19 year olds within a vision for how all parts of society can work together to support parents and help all young people succeed. It urges LAs to give young people a voice locally, to publicise to them the local offer of services, and enable young people to audit the quality of this offer. It recognises the value of youth work, emphasises the need for early intervention, and encourages a focus for public funding on those most at risk of poor outcomes. It calls on LAs to support communities and grow the role of voluntary organisations. LAs' duty on youth activities will be retained and new guidance published for consultation shortly.
