A review of youth work policy and practice over the current parliament has set out a series of recommendations for how to reform services under a new government to better meet young people’s emerging support needs. The rapid review by MPs Lloyd Russell-Moyle and Ben Bradley follows a call for evidence published with responses from frontline youth work organisations and practitioners informing the recommendations on priority areas for the next parliament.

MP’s review has 3 recommendations

1. Under the next government there should be a minister who has a portfolio focussed on young people.
2. With youth work seen as an essential service a national youth workforce strategy is needed.
3. There needs to be a standardised and national system for evaluating the sufficiency, suitability and quality of youth work.
