Youth green paper delayed further

    The publication of the youth green paper is expected to delayed
    until February and is expected to be published at the same time as
    the Russell Commission’s report on youth volunteering, YMCA
    England said this week, writes Amy
    Taylor.

    The green paper had previously been expected to be published in
    December.

    A YMCA England spokesperson said that the organisation expected
    the results of the Russell Commission’s consultation on youth
    action and engagement to either be included in proposals set out in
    the youth green paper or published separately at “much the
    same time”.

    Susanne Rauprich, chief executive of the National Council of
    Voluntary Youth Services, said that she also expected the green
    paper to come out in February.

    A Russell Commission spokesperson said that their report would
    be a separate document and that it would be published in late
    February to early March.

    The Commission’s report will put forward proposals for a
    new national framework to increase youth volunteering and civic
    service by young people.
