This paper builds on the insights from the ‘Out of Sight?’ research report, on the known and emerging needs of young people through COVID-19, published by the National Youth Agency (NYA) in April 2020.

We explore the role of youth services and youth work in schools and colleges, and the impact of the pandemic on vulnerable young people, in particular.

The report draws on valuable insights from our partners, based on their work with young people.
