Local Authority Statutory Duty Updated

Guidance for Local Authorities

Local authorities have a statutory duty to provide a local youth offer for young people and, in line with the strengthened guidance published on 28 September, are required to ensure that their local youth offer is responsive to the needs of young people.


New Youth Work Workforce survey launched

Help us understand the current level of skills in the youth work workforce by completing the Workforce Survey.

By completing the Workforce Survey you can help the NYA build an accurate picture of the type of roles people do in the youth work sector, the qualifications that people have, and the kind of youth work that is taking place to meet particular needs of young people.

The survey will take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.
