In Defence of Youth Work

Youth Work: Stories in Practice - To promote greater understanding of youth work, the In Defence of Youth Work campaign (IDYW) has been collecting youth workers’ accounts of youth work practice. These demonstrate its distinctive way of working with young people and the impacts this can have on lives of young people and their communities. IDYW has also been filming young people’s own accounts of why they go to youth clubs and other youth work facilities and why they value their youth workers. With the support of Unite and Unison, IDYW has brought these stories together as a book and DVD entitled `This is Youth Work`. The book and the video can be accessed here.
