SHAPING the FUTURE: Where Now for Youth and Community Work?

What are the anticipated outcomes of these events? It is intended that data and evidence will be gathered from all six events to inform a UK wide report on the future shaping of youth and community work education, practice and its agency. This will be used to talk with policy makers, to publicise the role of the sector and support a new generation of professionally informed youth and community workers.

What will be happening at these events*? Each event will follow a similar format that allows for the gathering of data and evidence around common themes and thorough similar activities, with a distinctly regional emphasis/stream running at each venue.
