Literature Review of Universal Youth Work

This extensive review attempts to define universal youth work and place it in the wider context of the theoretical and conceptual literature on youth work, the analysis and discussion are set against the background of the Scottish policy context.

The report addresses the following questions:

  1. What theories and concepts shape contemporary youth work?
  2. What outcomes arise from what we understand as ‘universal’ youth work provision?
  3. Can we demonstrate the link between universal youth work and the ‘national outcomes’ (as defined by the imperatives of the Scottish Government)?
