YST Chief Executive Ali Oliver, said:

"In the face of the continued challenges presented by COVID-19, I am extremely proud of what we were able to achieve last year.

"As the year began, the impact of the pandemic, successive lockdowns and school closures was clear. Existing inequalities had widened and physical activity levels, educational attainment and the general wellbeing of young people had suffered.

"In this report, we shared a summary of how we developed new programmes and support in response to the pandemic, how we pivoted existing programmes, and also how we have catalysed change and innovation in the sector through insight and bold new thinking."
