The Youth Summit
26 Jun 2007

The Youth Summit heralded a new era of service provision for young people with emerging priorities from the Government’s ten-year strategy for children and young people and the Comprehensive Spending Review. The event explored the Government’s ‘youth offer’ and mapped out the policy landscape for outcome-driven services for young people and their communities. It heard directly from a wide range of young people as experts by experience. This two-day event brought together Government Ministers, senior officials, leading policy makers, service providers and a panel of 100 young people from across England. Links between young people, communities and government were strengthened and delegates took an active part in moving from words to action to help ensure improved services and outcomes for young people.
