The Dacorum Youth Strategy Partnership Group provides a forum for local service providers and other key stakeholders to collaborate strategically and operationally. The group reviews and analyses key and emerging trends about issues affecting young people.
The group meets regularly to discuss these key issues in the area. It then decides on what local action needs to be taken, both collectively and by individual organisations, to target these issues and help ensure young people in Dacorum have the very best opportunities available.
For further information about the work of the Dacorum Youth Strategy Partnership Group, please contact the Chair, Karen Haswell, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
