The Government’s ambition is to ensure that young people have more opportunities to engage with the issues they are passionate about, because we firmly believe they should be empowered as citizens, connected to the political process and offered a meaningful say in the decisions that affect them. The Government have already made substantial steps towards this goal. In line with recommendation 12 of the Youth Citizenship Commission’s report published June 2009, the Government have established a series of youth panels across Government which help to provide advice to Ministers on specific issues.
