Following two years of Covid-19 restrictions, the youth work sector is ‘rebooting’ and NYA, along with regional partners, is developing initiatives that will enable youth work to thrive as part of a three year investment that empowers grassroots youth work

Join us as we tour each region of England throughout September for an afternoon of discussions, planning, sharing and networking. The 9 in-person events will run from 12.30 – 5pm with a networking lunch included. Presentation and discussion themes for the days will focus on:

  • Sector Policy and Advocacy: How we can work together to influence developments in youth work
    This will include updates on national and regional engagement with the latest policy initiatives
  • Youth Work Standards: How we ensure the tools are available to sustain high quality youth work
    This will include updates on safeguarding, the Youth Work Curriculum, Youth Worker training and registration
  • National and Regional Programmes: How sector agencies are working to support grassroots youth work
    This will include updates on engagement opportunities for grassroots organisations
  • Youth Sector Investment: How recent announcements of sector investment can resource your local work
    This will include updates on resources available to grow, develop and sustain local youth work

More details on the full programme and contributors will be published prior to each event.

These are FREE EVENTS.

We encourage early registration as numbers are limited at each venue and, to support attendance, we are offering bursaries for smaller grassroots organisations to support travel costs (subject to conditions/application). Please contact Lisa for further information on bursaries:
