Creating a Statutory Youth Service!
NOVEMBER 06, 2019
ChooseYouth are holding a roundtable event in Westminster on April 23rd, 4-6pm, and invite those with an interest in protecting, resourcing and delivering a statutory youth service to get involved.
This event follows the successful parliamentary event held earlier this year.
Youth services are an essential part of a lifelong learning and civil society and act as the bedrock to many young peoples lives. Over recent years youth service provision decline has been seen across the country with parts going completely without.
The publication of Sian Berry's report this week into youth service provision in London is timely as it clearly demonstrates the 'destruction' of vital universal services. Read more here.
ChooseYouth which represents over 30 voluntary youth sector organisations has long championed a universal, open access statutory youth service and now in partnership with MP’s in parliament they plan to introduce a bill to create such a service.
This roundtable event will act as the beginning of that legislative process, bringing together key stakeholders to give their input, not only on the current state of youth services but how best we can advance the cause of a statutory service.
