Standards for the Maintained Youth Service in Wales (draft)

Author: Wales Youth Agency 2005

This draft document was produced by the Principal Youth Officers of Wales (PYOG) with the support of the Wales Youth Agency (WYA) to encourage Local Authority Youth Services to introduce these standards in the context of their total resource allocation.

The document identifies an agreed set of standards for Youth Service provision, which are designed to promote young people’s social development and personal achievement within the economic and social policy agenda of the Welsh Assembly Government. It should complement other standards to secure effective policy for young people across various services. In particular they underpin those of ESTYN in respect of the quality and outcomes of the work of the Youth Service.  Locally agreed standards may improve on these minimum national standards.

[The document remains draft as it was not formally adopted at it's publication due to the financial implications for local authorities in meeting these standards.]

Straight and True – The Story of the Swansea Boys Club from the 1930s to the 1960s

Author: John Barber date unknown

Senior club members participated in the organisation of club life by monitoring the progress of new club members and making recommendations to the senior committee as to whether the young probationers should become full club members. The Variety Club of Great Britain was particularly generous to the Swansea Boys Club. The policy of the Local Education Authority was to provide mixed youth clubs and the Club became officially known as the ‘Swansea Boys and Girls Club’.

Strategies for Intervention: An Approach to Youth & Community Work in an Area of Social Deprivation (Summary Report)

Author: Dr Howard Williamson and Kaye Weatherspoon, University College Cardiff 1985

Shorter summary of a lengthy and detailed report on the Ely Youth and Community Project arising from evaluation of its work during a two and a half year research study. The report aims to highlight the issues concerning policy, practice, provision and research which appear to be the most central messages to be shared with the wider field. It is hoped that this report will still provoke serious discussion and thought amongst policy makers, practitioners and students alike (and indeed anyone concerned with working with young people) from both within and outside the youth and community field. The research was prompted both by demands from fieldworkers in Ely and by a wider concern within Wales over a number of years about the need to develop more collaborative inter-agency approaches to working with young people and the community.
