Supporting Quality Work
With Young People



The landscape of youth work and the role of youth professionals - in local government and the VCS - have changed enormously in recent years as funding has been withdrawn or redirected.

Over this time many partnerships and a great deal of infrastructure have been lost, including some of YFWM's sister organisations in other parts of the country. YFWM has 'cut its cloth' and continued to facilitate network developments in the region.

Following a successful summer conference and the September AGM, with strong stakeholder involvement and some continuation funding we are reviewing the way that youth professionals subscribe to and connect with the network as well as the professional youth work information, communication and support we are able to offer through it.

NCS The Challenge – An Introduction

NCS is a youth and community programme for fifteen – seventeen year olds operational in London, Surrey, Berkshire, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Manchester, and across the West Midlands. The young people take part in a three week programme that includes two parts residential (outdoor activity centre and university residential) and one part work in their local community, where they work with a local partner to design and deliver a Social Action campaign. After the programme and graduation, the young people are invited to join our alumni scheme The Challenge Society and have the opportunity to partake in year round events.
