This inquiry on the role and sufficiency of youth work was launched in May 2018. To understand the complexity of youth work, the APPG on Youth Affairs issued a call for evidence and received over 100 submissions in answer to the following lines of enquiry:

  • What is the role of youth work in addressing the needs and opportunities for young people?
  • Are the key issues and challenges faced by young people being addressed by current youth service provisions?
  • Are there sufficient youth workers to support youth services and other delivery models for good quality youth work?
  • What is the training and workforce development need to secure and sustain youth work?

The body of evidence submitted and representation received by the APPG for Youth Affairs is reflected in this summary report to inform debate on youth policy and provision, following the Government’s Civil Society Strategy (June 2018). This summary report is published for further consultation and to include all responses in the full report on final publication by the end of 2018.
