National Youth Work Conference 2022 - Tackling Poverty: The Power of Youth Work to Change Lives

More than one in four children and young people are officially living in recognised poverty in Scotland. This can have a significant impact on health and wellbeing, access to services, educational attainment and employability pathways. In addition, many young people currently experience poverty related stigma and discrimination. Youth work plays a vital role supporting the needs of young people whilst ensuring they have equal access to services and that their voices are heard.

Join us on 8 November in Glasgow to explore youth work’s role in poverty reduction, demonstrating best practice across the sector from practitioners, academics and keynote speakers including the voices of individuals who have first-hand experience of the daily poverty-related issues faced and ways that the sector could work together to resolve some of these issues and continue supporting young people. 

This national event is aimed at:

  • The youth work sector.
  • Other related professionals interested in the impact of poverty on young people.
  • Education and academic professionals.
  • Volunteers.

There will also be a small exhibition area for participants to find out about services and products which may enhance practice. If your organisation is interested in having an information stall in the networking area please complete the booking form by Monday 3 October 2022.
