On 3 July 2013 the Cabinet Office assumed responsibility for cross-government youth strategy and policy. Areas transferred from the Department for Education include the statutory duty on local authorities to deliver youth services, Youth Voice and democracy, working with the youth sector, and international youth issues.

This is an exciting opportunity to build on Cabinet Office's existing work, in particular, encouraging more active citizenship and local social action among young people, and new models of service delivery.

The Cabinet Office will be developing this agenda over the coming months, together with the youth sector, building on Positive for Youth, the cross-government vision on supporting young people to achieve their potential.
