The NYA and the Regional Youth Work Units are co-hosting regional roadshows to share our work and to gather insights from those working with young people and in youth services across the country, to inform our collective action.
Join us as we tour each region of England throughout January to March for a day of discussions, planning, sharing and networking. The seven in-person events will run from 10.30 – 16:00 with a networking lunch included. Presentation and discussion themes for the days will focus on:
- Morning (10:30-12:30) –the updated guidance for the local statutory duty and what this means for local authorities, local youth services and organisations and the allied sectors. We’ll talk through different models that have been adopted by local authorities and by the VCS sector. We’ll talk through a new toolkit to support local authorities to meet this duty.
- Lunch and Networking (12:30-13:30)
- Afternoon (13:30-16:00) – we will update on national policy activity, workforce development and funding streams building on the findings of the ‘Joining the Dots’ report. We will also hear from regional and local organisations on developments in the sector and discuss how we can support and advocate to meet the sector’s most pressing needs.
More details on the full programme and contributors will be published prior to each event. The day will contain talks, panel Q&As, breakout discussions and networking.
These are FREE EVENTS.
We encourage early registration as numbers are limited at each venue.
To support attendance, we are offering bursaries for smaller grassroots organisations to help with travel costs (subject to conditions/application). Please contact Lydia for further information on bursaries: firstname.lastname@example.org
