Positive for Youth: A new approach to cross-government policy for young people aged 13 to 19

Published on 19 December 2011. The government describes it as bringing together:

"...for the first time all of the Government’s policies for young people aged 13 to 19. It therefore covers a wide range of issues – from education and youth services, to health, crime, housing and more.  Nine government departments have been involved in developing it – including the Department for Education, the Department of Health, the Home Office and the Department for Communities and Local Government."
