Historic collaboration launches at Buckingham Palace!

_ _

Today leaders of Britain are coming together to pledge support to Step Up To Serve. Through these pledges we aim to increase opportunities for young people to get involved in social action.

Today we launch a national pledge initiative called #iwill which will include personal commitments from HRH The Prince of Wales, the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition and 50 you people who exemplify the best in youth social action in the UK. The pledges include the Cabinet Office committing to involve young people in the working of at least 30 public service mutuals. They will also share data from projects funded via the youth social action funds which are collectively investing up to £11m in youth social action projects.

We are really pleased to announce support from the United States. The Corporation for National and Commnunity Service pledges to share experience and best practices to inform our efforts to expand youth social action. The Corporation is a federal agency that enages more than five million Americans in service.

The DCLG (Department of Communities and Local Government) are investing £10m to provide over 400 new units and 10,000 available places for young people to participate in cadet organisations.

The NHS will set up a new NHS England youth forum enabling young people to get more involved and hold the NHS to account for our services for children and young people.

For these and the many other pledges the campaign is announcing today, see here. Make your own pledge to support the campaign by telling us what you will do here.
