In August last year, my department published the Civil Society Strategy, in which the Government committed to review the guidance which sets out the statutory duty placed on local authorities to provide appropriate local youth services. An announcement will be made shortly. We expect that the review will provide greater clarity of Government’s expectations, including the value added by good youth work.
