Important alert from Kerry Jenkins. IDYW will be sending a couple of representatives.
It has been over a year since we came together at the event ‘Youth Work and Youth Services: Our Shared Future’ and much has happened over this past twelve months.
A government with no real mandate continues to oversee the destruction of youth services up and down the UK and more than ever we need our collective strength to discuss strategies to combat this.
We have been given some hope with the Labour Party revitalised under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn and willing and eager to discuss youth policy.
Our next meeting will be held on the 4TH September at 11 am in room 11, north wing entrance (marked A on the map attached) at the Guildhall, London.
It is important that you all send a representative to this meeting if possible as we need to refocus our campaign and get on with the very important job at hand.
If you can let me know the names of people representing your organisation who will be attending by the 28th August this will assist with the internal booking system.
We will also be electing to the positions of Chair and Secretary and I will be happy to receive expressions of interest for either of these positions in advance of the meeting.
Please also forward this message on to other sector contacts who may be interested in joining us.
