The Government works closely with national youth organisations to look at ways in which Government can support high quality youth work through our existing programme and policies.

We are working to offer practical support to the youth sector at a time when local authorities continue to make difficult decisions on how to deliver services. Our support focuses on promoting delivery models for innovative youth services, including mutuals, and better measurement of the impact of youth services on the lives of young people. We also continue to ensure opportunities exists for young people to develop skills and confidence through programmes like National Citizen Service.
