Be part of the conversation

Thank you to everyone who has fed into this work to date. The collaborative approach adopted to inform the development of this work will continue to be vital during this next phase, under the advice of the Youth Work Strategy Implementation Board and its Implementation Participation Groups, as well as other partners.

A series of ‘drop in’ Empower Hour sessions for youth workers and youth support workers began on 11 December. These have covered a range of themes, including a rights-based approach, youth work definitions and functions, and leadership and partnerships. This engagement will continue in the new year, with opportunities for individuals across the youth work sector and beyond to be part of the conversation. Further details will be shared soon.
