The Scottish Government has laid out its ambitions for youth work in Scotland. Their strategy states that:
“All young people, in every part of Scotland, should have access to high quality and effective youth work practice. This is what we believe and this is what we aspire to. We can only achieve, this by working together with young people, Community Planning Partnerships, relevant organisations and other partners.
Youth work principles and values are integral to developing these services and ambitions but only by placing the young person at the centre and listening to them can we begin to do so.”
This session is an opportunity to hear about the National Youth Work Strategy and what it says. There will be an opportunity to discuss what this means for the third sector in Glasgow and make comment and ask questions.
Facilitated by: Helen Scammell, Head of Operations, GCVS
Expert speaker: Ian McLaughlin, Youth Scotland
Coffee and registration at 9.30am for a 10am start.
