Youth Work Inquiry Final Report April 2019

The All Party Parliamentary Group for Youth Affairs (APPG) has released its final report of the Inquiry into youth work in England. The report has found that youth work is capable of reaching children who may otherwise remain inaccessible and helps build trusted relationships with adults who can help them access the support they need.

The report concludes that there should be a minister responsible for young people and youth work, that there needs to be a greater investment in youth work, that the Government should introduce a statutory duty and that there should be guidance that defines the minimum and protected level of youth service.
