The Department for Education, in partnership with the National Council for Voluntary Youth Services [NCVYS], brought together over 270 delegates with a stake in services for young people on March 9 2011. From voluntary organisations to the private sector, civil servants to government ministers, participants shared their views on what is needed to make Government policy really work for young people.
Among the speakers were Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg and Tim Loghton, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Children and Families. But the real stars were the young people themselves in particular our own Danielle Vitalis who gave a presentation on the L8R project with the usual confidence, charm and just plain cool!
