Policy Seminars

The YouthLink Scotland Policy Forum played a valued role in supporting members to review, research, and promote national and international policy and good practice. However in 2017 it was decided to review the format and function of the Policy Forum, and a decision was made to disband the Policy Forum and in its place to establish a series of Policy Seminars.

In the autumn of 2018 we hosted our first Policy Seminar Series. Policy Seminars are opportunities for youth work practitioners, policy makers, academics, and other interested stakeholders to come together. The Seminars are designed in a way which will facilitate networking, collaboration, as well as creating precious time for critical thinking and reflection. 

The first policy seminar took place in Glasgow and focused attention towards adverse childhood experiences and the development of resilience within the context of youth work relationships and practice. The second policy seminar took place in Edinburgh and focused attention towards digital youth work and cyber resilience.

What's happening in 2019?

We are currently working on two Policy Seminars, so save the date for now - 28 August in Glasgow and 18 September in Edinburgh.

More information will be posted here soon.
