Youth Work

The overall aim of this ‘snapshot’ inquiry was to review the effectiveness of Welsh Government’s strategy and policy in respect of youth work. The Children, Young People and Education Committee held a public consultation to gather evidence on the following points:

  • Young people’s access to youth work services;
  • How effective the Welsh Government strategy and policy on youth work is;
  • Funding for youth work (Local Authority, Welsh Government, European, Third Sector);
  • Any other issues considered to be relevant to the Inquiry.

[Note: This inquiry did not seek evidence on local and national youth participation structures, which the Committee regards as an important issue and which will require further consideration within its work programme.]

The Committee has published its report on the findings of the inquiry:
