YMCA George Williams College would like to invite you to our upcoming conference on the role of research in supporting youth and community work, taking place on Friday 6thFebruary 2015.

There is a need for more research to underpin practice which takes place within the field of youth and community work. yresearch: the conference provides an opportunity for practitioners and researchers to come together and debate and discuss recent research associated with youth and community work.

This conference is open to anyone interested in youth and community work which is supported by research and we hope to have a range of practitioners, academics and those interested in policy, research and/or practice attending.

The cost of attending is £35 (£10 for students) and the event will take place from 10am – 4pm on Friday 6th February at YMCA George Williams College in London. To book your place, please use Eventbrite by clicking here.
