Summary from our last Youth Work Network meeting

Thank you to all who attended our last Youth Work Network Meeting on 20 April.

We discussed how youth projects and organisations were responding to the changing Government guidance and regulations around delivery, including allowing Open Access delivery outside of buildings. These received a mixed response from youth workers and young people, generally leading to a blended approach of continuing with online provision and gradually increasing face-to-face outdoor activities where possible, depending on local circumstances and clear outcomes.  
Our next Youth Work Network meeting will take place on Thursday 24 June 2-4pm. If you'd like to attend, please get in touch with Aimee.

The Brilliant Club

At our April Youth Work Network meeting, we were joined by Harriet and Aziz from The Brilliant Club, an organisation working to increase the number of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds going to university. You can find the slides from their presentation here; please do get in touch with them if you want to find out more or to talk to them about partnership working.

The Big Ask

There's still some time for young people to complete The Big Ask survey. The Big Ask is the largest survey of children and young people in England. This is their opportunity to tell the Government what they think and what they need to live happier lives. The survey closes on Wednesday 19 May.

Just One Question

UK Youth and the Centre for Youth Impact have launched their Just One Question portal.
Inspired by the need for more understanding of the youth sector, the platform will ask a single question a week on the big issues facing youth workers. The answers will inform our work, grow our understanding and enable us to give a louder voice to youth workers.

St Giles SOS+ Programme

St Giles' SOS+ Service webinars will take place throughout May to July. The sessions will unpack and explore the realities and consequences of county lines, gang involvement, criminal exploitation and serious youth violence.
It will assist in identifying signs and triggers of these forms of exploitation and how to respond or report. There are different sessions available for parents and professionals.

Pan-Disability Mini Kickers

The Community Sports Foundation is running new football sessions for children with varying additional needs.

Find out more on the poster.

An Opportunity from Beatfreeks with Wellcome Trust

Beatfreeks are a youth insight and engagement agency, who are working on a project with Wellcome Trust. Wellcome Trust are looking for young people aged 13-17 to be involved in an exciting project to understand how young people can be at the heart of heart of creating solutions to big issues of today.
The project will take place over a few hours between May and July this year and will involve workshops, interviews, online journaling, and Q&As with science researchers. The project would be a great opportunity for young people to expand their CV, and each participant will receive £80 in a choice of gift cards. If they’re interested, young people can find more information and apply to be involved at this link: If you have any questions, please contact
