The latest information about the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Youth Affairs is now on a new website. The group was established in 1998 to raise the profile of issues that affect and concern young people, encourage dialogue between parliamentarians, young people and youth services, and encourage a co-ordinated and coherent approach to youth policymaking. The group currently has around 100 members, drawn from both Houses of Parliament.
NCVYS, YMCA England and the British Youth Council run the Secretariat for the APPG. Julie Hilling MP (Lab) is the chair the APPG. Other officers of the group are Vice Chair Simon Hughes MP (LD, Treasurer James Morris MP (Con) and Secretary Sir Peter Bottomley MP (Con). The group is supported by an advisory group of experts drawn from organisations that work with young people.
