Youth Work Research – update

Following a successful launch seminar of the recent research report ‘Universal Youth Work – a critical review of the literature’, further work is being done to explore the research gaps that it has thrown up and begin to prioritise what youth work focus research would be of benefit to the sector particularly given the current funding climate.

A follow up workshop lead by the Scottish Collaboration for Public Health Research and Policy (SCPHRP) and involving practitioners, managers and academics it began to explore and prioritise what focussed research would be of most benefit to youth work in Scotland over the next few years. The insights and priorities identified will now be taken forward by the youth work research group under the chair of Dona Milne  which is a sub group of Youthlink Scotland’s implementation group for the National Youth Work Strategy.
