Over the last year the Institute for Youth Work (IYW) steering group has been planning for the IYW membership to take over the governance and continue the development of the Institute for Youth Work that was started by the National Youth Agency.
The first step has been the election of members to the IYW Council from each of the membership categories. Ten representatives have now been appointed onto the IYW Council.
Over the next month, the IYW Council will be taking over the responsibilities of the IYW including the website, Twitter account, membership correspondence/support and the future recruitment of members to the IYW.
The NYA is proud of the work undertaken to date and the support received from the sector in starting the Institute for Youth Work. It will remain involved as an organisational supporter and will contribute as both individual members and in promoting the work of the IYW wherever possible.
