APPG on Youth Affairs: Youth Work Inquiry
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Youth Affairs has published its inquiry into the role, issues, challenges and needs of youth work to adequately serve young people today.
Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP, Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Youth Affairs, comments: “It is seven years since the last parliamentary inquiry into youth services and youth work. Over the years youth work has borne the brunt of significant spending cuts. Recent events and reports suggest the loss of youth work has had a negative impact on young people and communities.
“In the face of rapid technological change and major economic and societal challenges we need to look again at what support young people need now and to meet their needs for the future.”
This inquiry looks outlines the key findings from the 2018 study into youth work, looks at its changing role and asks if current provision is sufficient to meet need.
