National Youth Work Conference - Youth Work 2020: Resilient, Resourceful and Reimagined

Back to events

Undoubtedly 2020 has been an incredibly challenging year for young people here in Scotland. Lockdown saw the immediate closure of schools, exams disrupted, unemployment levels soared, a new level of social and digital isolation was experienced, poor mental health increased, whilst other health suffered, more families were thrown into poverty and young people from protected characteristics felt the added isolation due to additional barriers.

The youth work sector has responded with energy and commitment. Together we have supported young people and communities, developed new partnerships and found innovative ways to maintain positive relationships with the young people we work with - and all whilst facing funding restrictions and organisational challenges.

With all of this in mind, this year’s National Youth Work Conference on 3 and 4 November will showcase the strength and adaptability of the sector, share practice from across Scotland - and Internationally - and explore the future direction of Youth Work.

This event is open to anyone who has an interest in making the youth sector in Scotland ever more resilient, growing our resources and working towards a positive future for young people.
