The North Herts Youth Strategy Group provides a strategic and operational forum for service providers, users and other key stakeholders to identify the key issues affecting young people. It looks to agree what local action needs to be taken, both collectively and by individual organisations, to help address these issues and to ensure young people have the best opportunities possible.
For further information about the work of the North Herts Youth Strategy Group, please contact the Chair, Judith Sutton, on 01438 843340 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
