During the last year, as a sector, we have much to be immensely proud of; continuing to put young people first and finding solutions to provide youth work support to those that need it most. 

For us at NYA, March 2020 was the launch of our new five-year strategy. Fanfare for this was not appropriate as we moved to lock down and turned our energy to what needed doing in the moment. Reflecting back, our strategy enabled that clarity and pace for who we are and what we do best as the home of youth work.  In the light of Covid-19, we accelerated our digital growth to provide online support, resources, discussions, learning and qualifications to enable high quality youth work responses to the pandemic,  we led research to understand the changing landscape for young people and the necessity of youth work within this and importantly steered the sector through our Covid-19 guidance, working with Government to ensure clarity on the delivery of youth activities.
