Positive for Youth: Executive Summary

Positive for Youth is a new approach to cross-Government policy for young people aged 13-19 in England. It brings together all of the Government’s policies for this age group, presenting a single vision across the interests of at least nine departments.

It has been produced with young people and youth professionals through extensive collaboration and consultation.

Positive for Youth sets out a shared vision for how all parts of society – including councils, schools, charities, businesses – can work together in partnership to support families and improve outcomes for young people, particularly those who are most disadvantaged or vulnerable.
