Our commitment to supporting the Youth Service in creating opportunities is set out in this strategy.

Extending Entitlement is the Welsh Government’s flagship policy for youth support services in Wales. It includes all services, support and opportunities for young people between 11 and 25, wherever they happen, whoever is delivering them and wherever the funding originates.

The responsibility for supporting young people through their developments rests on a wide range of organisations at local level, all of whom will have a part to play in supporting them at their different stages of development.

Extending Entitlement and associated guidances set out the framework for the provision of youth support services in Wales and the responsibilities of the Local Authorities.
