Youth Services Green Paper
11 July 2005, 27 Sussex Place, Regents Park, London
The Youth Services Green Paper is a crucial development, with many new challenges. As local authorities prepare to establish children's trusts with responsibility for integrated youth services, the challenge is to ensure that all services are joined-up, government expectations are met and all relevant stakeholder views are taken into account. LGC is pleased to be presenting this essential Youth Services Green Paper conference, which is the first of a three-part series, following the development of government's youth policy, from green paper to act.
