The review process will begin with a series of sector led roundtables, including the Youth Voice Steering Group which was set up following the publication of the Civil Society Strategy, the Local Government Association and the National Advisory Board of the National Youth Agency. A public call for evidence will be open for 8 weeks over the Summer, from late July to September.
