DCEDIY Youth Consultations
Calling all youth workers and volunteer youth leaders!
Are you a Youth Worker(DCEDIY funded) or Volunteer Youth Leader – please join us at the Consultations on the forth-coming National Action Plan for Youth Services – Opportunities for Youth!
The Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth is currently developing an Action Plan for Youth Services that will identify strategic priorities and an overall direction for youth services over the next 5 years, in line with the lifetime of the new National Policy Framework for Children and Young People.
The document, provisionally entitled ‘Opportunities for Youth,’ will set out national policy for youth services and identify the purposes of State investment in this sector and what we want it to deliver for young people and society. The chief aim of ‘Opportunities for Youth’ will be to enhance young people’s access to and benefits gained from participation in youth work services and related opportunities.
