The Labour MP and former foreign secretary David Miliband will launch a report on youth unemployment next week, produced by the taskforce he has chaired in association with the charity chief executives group Acevo.

Miliband was appointed to chair the taskforce in August and has taken evidence on youth unemployment from charities, social enterprises, businesses, academics and local authorities.

Baroness Stedman-Scott, chief executive of the charity Tomorrow’s People, and Jonathan Portes, director of the National Institute for Economic and Social Research, were also on the taskforce panel.

The report, Youth Unemployment: the crisis we cannot afford, will be published on Monday. It will suggest ways in which organisations in the voluntary sector as well as the public and private sectors could tackle youth unemployment.

An Acevo spokeswoman said the report would include new figures on the costs of youth unemployment to the state and a new regional analysis of the areas of the UK where the problem is greatest.
