Local authority youth services survey 2013

This survey explored the different ways in which local authorities provide youth services and activities for young people.



This survey looked at how local authorities in England provide, as far as possible, sufficient services and activities for young people aged 13 to 19, and those with learning difficulties to age 24, to improve their well-being. The survey asked questions about each local authority’s statutory duty, other services and activities for young people and the challenges they faced when providing services.

The survey was not mandatory. It was sent to individuals within each local authority who were primarily responsible for youth services.
