Coming Events, the Corbyn Effect and an Apology

This week I’m going to be dashing about so there won’t be many posts. One of my weaknesses is failing to keep the Events page up-to-date. Hence this post tries to catch up on what events are in the offing

Friday, September 8 International Study Visit meeting in Birmingham organised by Newman in partnership with Norway and Professional Open Youth Work Europe [POYWE]. IDYW is contributing sessions on the state of youth work in England through Bernard Davies and Tony Taylor.Other speakers include Howard Sercombe [Scotland], Sue Morgan [Northern Ireland] and Mick Conroy [Wales]

Jeremy Corbyn’s victory has certainly animated many a youth worker on Facebook. We’ll try to do a post next week exploring the possible implications as a catalyst to further discussion.


Finally an apology to several folk, who have sent in material, which has not yet appeared. I’ll endeavour to catch up next week. Best Wishes to all.
