Setting the direction for youth work organisations for the next four years.

On the 20 February 2014 the Deputy Minister for Skills and Technology launched the new National Youth Work Strategy for Wales (2014-2018).

The strategy recognises:

  • the value and role of open access youth work provision
  • promotes a stronger connection between youth work provision and formal education
  • identifies the need for closer working between statutory and voluntary youth work organisations, and
  • identifies the need to significantly strengthen the evidence base on the impact of youth work across Wales.

The Welsh Government, national and local voluntary organisations, and local authorities will need to work together to successfully implement the identified actions and drive youth work forward.
