Youth policy is already part of my Ministerial portfolio. Making sure young people can access the support and opportunities they need to fulfil their potential is a priority across Government. Departments collaborate closely on policies relating to young people and as demonstrated by the attendance of the Secretary of State for Education and the Minister for Sport and Civil Society at the recent Youth Parliament, Ministers are personally committed to championing young people.
