Rapport April 2018

Have a look at our latest edition of Rapport. This is your magazine so please do get in touch and let us know your story.

Valuing Youth Work

This report contains case studies of local authority-funded projects in Birmingham, Devon, Hartlepool, Hounslow, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Rotherham and the Wirral. Each example shows how organisations and councils can work together to provide services covering health, citizenship, participation, and training and education, and the positive impacts such work has on young people.

The Benefits of Youth Work written In conjunction with LLUK and Unite and researched by staff at the National Youth Agency is slightly dated now but still widely used and sets out  in simple terms the reasons why our work is important, why it is cost effective and how it makes a real difference to young people`s lives.
