In line with departmental policy on reducing the volume of material sent to schools, we informed schools about Youth Matters through an e-mail alert; coverage on Teachernet and Governornet; an article in Teachers Magazine; and a letter to all independent schools.
We have also produced a young people's questionnaire. This is being distributed to young people through youth organisations such as the National Youth Agency, UK Youth Parliament and the DfES Children and Youth Board. Schools have also been made aware of this publication and have been encouraged to involve their pupils in the consultation.
The young people's questionnaire is also available in Braille, audio, Easy-read and British sign Language versions, which will be distributed to young people through organisations such as MENCAP.
