The contribution of youth work to the Programme for Government in Wales

Author: Youth Work Alliance Wales 2013

This paper seeks specifically to identify the broader Welsh Government (WG) policies and demonstrate where and how youth work does/can make a significant contribution to the achievement of those policies by improving the life chances of young people aged 11-25. It is not the purpose of this paper to identify new areas or scope of operation for youth work, but to highlight the role it currently undertakes, as a specific form of work with young people, in contributing to and complementing WG policy.

The strands that make up Programme for Government consist of the following:

  • Growth and Sustainable Jobs
  • Public Services
  • 21st Century Healthcare
  • Education
  • Supporting People
  • Welsh Homes
  • Safer Communities
  • Equality
  • Tackling Poverty
  • Rural Communities
  • Environment & Sustainability
  • Culture & Heritage of Wales 

How has Section 28 of the Local Government Act (1988) Impacted on Youth Work with Young People?

Author: John Bond, Cardiff Metropolitan University, 2012

Section 28 of the Local Government Act (1988) was a piece of legislation which was implemented by the Conservative-led Government to prevent the promotion of homosexuality as a pretend family unit. This study set out to explore whether Section 28 impacted on Youth Work with young people, whilst exploring whether this legislation impacted on the practice of youth workers and their youth work colleagues. There has been a huge amount of research and literature into how Section 28 impacted on the Education Services, with little or no research undertaken from a Youth Work perspective.
