The Action Plan includes activities of the Youth Department and of other sectors of the Council of Europe, particularly some of the activities of the Team of the Special Representative of the Secretary General on Roma issues (for example, the RoMed programme, the work of the Ad-Hoc Committee of Experts on Roma), the Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Unit, along with activities proposed by other partners.

The partners of the Roma Youth Action Plan include, first and foremost, youth organisations and platforms:

An Informal Contact Group co-ordinates the partners in the implementation and evaluation of the programme of activities. The contact group operates within the context of co-management in place at the Youth Department; the Advisory Council on Youth and the European Steering Committee on Youth take an active part in the contact group and, as Joint Council on Youth, carry the political support and responsibility for the plan in the Council of Europe.

The Open Society Foundations, the European Roma Rights Centre, SALTO-Youth network and OSCE – ODIHR also take part in the plan. The project is also open to other interested stakeholders.

The partners of the Roma Youth Action Plan meet regularly, once or twice a year, in an Informal Contact Group to update each other on new develpments and provide input and orientations to the plan.
