This statement sets out all of the Government’s policies for young people aged 13 to 19 in England within the context of a vision for a society which will enable all young people to succeed. It sets out a new partnership approach for giving young people more opportunities and better support – with young people themselves as key influencers and with voluntary and community groups and local businesses drawn in as full partners. A number of the policies covered apply across the United Kingdom, such as those of the Home Office, the Ministry of Justice, the Department for Work and Pensions, and the Ministry of Defence. The Government will work with the devolved administrations on areas of shared interest.
