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

Time is running out to book your place at this year’s National Youth Work Conference on 3 and 4 November.

It has been an incredibly challenging year for young people here in Scotland but 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 while facing funding restrictions and organisational challenges.

With all of this in mind, the National Youth Work Conference will showcase the strength and adaptability of the sector, share practice from across Scotland - and internationally - and explore the future direction of youth work.

Highlights include:

  • Diane Stockton, the Covid-19 Social and System Recovery Lead for Public Health Scotland will be talking about how we mitigate the risk and harm of the pandemic to young people and youth work's role in that.
  • Stewart Kyasimire, Director of BAFTA nominated documentary, ‘Black and Scottish’ will be speaking about his experience of growing up as part of an ethnic minority in Scotland.

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

There is a small cost for the event to help cover admin and overheads, £15 for members and £25 for non-members.
