This report provides an overview of Youth (16-18) dLS in 2009/10 across England based on Management Information (MI) returns from providers. Trends have been presented where data for previous years was available. The analysis of 2009/10 MI returns seeks to provide an up to date account of evidence and trends in dLS in order to support an assessment of their impact and effectiveness and inform future developments. However, this report is not intended to evaluate the reasons for such trends. The report is presented in three sections; the first provides background information relating to dLS funding, including a summary of policy changes; the second is a summary of the methodology applied and the data collection process; whilst the third provides a summary of the findings including an overview of the national and regional picture of dLS expenditure in 2009/10 and more detailed analyses on the various funding lines of youth dLS (i.e. hardship and residential bursary). The report is supplemented by appendices which present detailed breakdowns of youth dLS expenditure for individual regions" - page 5.
