In January 2018, the report of Steve Holliday’s Review into Full-Time Social Action for Young People was published. The Review was designed to look at how to increase young people’s participation in full-time social action by considering the challenges and benefits for young people and the experiences of organisations supporting them.

The report contains 8 recommendations aimed at government, the VCSE sector and businesses, which are designed to remove the barriers discouraging participation and create an environment where full-time social action opportunities are more accessible. The government response addresses each of these recommendations in turn.
