'Data sharing could help young adults'

From this week's Young People Now:

The information-sharing system being developed for children and young people could be extended to young adults. Hilary Armstrong, the minister for social exclusion at the Cabinet Office, is chairing a cabinet committee on datasharing, and told Young People Now she is interested in exploring some of the information-sharing ideas from Every Child Matters.

Armstrong is also looking at the Social Exclusion Unit's Transitions report on working with troubled young adults, and how this work can be taken forward.

"Data sharing is very much part of that," she said. "There is a good model coming out of the Every Child Matters agenda, and we can use that in Transitions and in the adult field."
