National Youth Work Strategy 2014-19 progress report published

With the development of a new national strategy for Scotland's youth work sector already well underway, we are delighted to be able to take a look back at the achievements of the 2014-20 National Youth Work Strategy through the publication of our progress report.

Six years ago, the youth work sector came together to set out five key ambitions that would help young people across Scotland to achieve their full potential, with the appropriate level of support and guidance across the country.

Through a mixture of hard work and partnership working, the realisation of our first National Youth Work Strategy has strengthened the sector, increased the reach of vital youth work services and promoted core values such as equality, diversity and accessibility.

Some of the notable achievements of the strategy include: the strengthening of the voice and rights of young people, demonstrated by the success of the Year of Young People; an increase in the number of young people taking part in environmental social action; improved human rights of children through the incorporation of UNCRC; the progression of democratic engagement of young people; an improved evidence base that community-based youth work really does change lives.

Help us celebrate the leaps and bounds the sector has made already by sharing the progress report using the #YouthWorkChangesLives hashtag.
