This is the first notice of the forthcoming ChooseYouth event announced at the IDYW conference on March 9.
CREATING A STATUTORY YOUTH SERVICE – ROUND TABLE EVENT
DATE AND TIME
Mon 23 April 2018 16:00 – 18:00 BST
Palace of Westminster, London, SW1A 0AA
Following the successful parliamentary event earlier this year, we are pleased to announce a roundtable discussion on the importance of youth services and creation of a statutory youth service.
Youth services are an essential part of a lifelong learning and civil society and act as the bedrock of many young peoples lives. Over recent years we’ve seen youth service provision decline across the country with parts going completely without.
ChooseYouth which represents over 30 voluntary youth sector organisations has long championed a universal, open access statutory youth service and now in partnership with MP’s in parliament we plan to introduce a bill to create such a service.
This roundtable event in parliament will act as the beginning of that legislative process, bringing together key stakeholders to give their input, not only on the current state of youth services but how best we can advance the cause of a statutory service.
