National Youth Agency launches vision for youth work in England
The NYA have published their vision for youth work in England. The publication sets out the charity’s aim that by 2020 every young person will have access to high quality youth work in their community.
The Agency lays out the steps needed to make its vision a reality, examining the role of local government, the business community, the youth work sector as well as providers and young people themselves.
Fiona Blacke, NYA CEO said
“Government must establish mechanisms to facilitate social investment. This will encourage investment of funds in youth services which can then be repaid when outcomes delivering cost savings to the state are achieved. Front loading services early on will cut costs in the long term.”
