The Youth Work Inquiry sponsored by the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Youth Affairs finds that youth work is both wanted and needed by young people today, and that youth services can respond not just to young people as individuals, but also to their wider communities. The briefing looks forward to the Government’s new Youth Charter.
