Youth Work Week has arrived and with it the theme, Have Your Voice Heard. It’s topical right now as young people’s voice is becoming harder to hear.
Youth Work Week runs from 2-8 November 2015. It’s an opportunity to promote youth work and the positive impacts it has on young people.

Leeds Beckett University, in partnership with the National Youth Agency, has launched a new part time route to a professional Youth Work qualification.
A year is a long time; as you grow up you learn to savour every year and every moment and this past year is something I’ll definitely remember for the rest of my life.
