This is Youth Work: Stories from Practice

Illustrations for “This is Youth Work: Stories from Practice“, IDYW/Unison/Unite, 2011

The book is a collection of stories and critical essays from youth work practitioners and young people demonstrating the importance of voluntary, open-access, democratic and flexible youth work practice. The project was carried out by In Defence of Youth Work with support from Unison and Unite and arose from concerns about increasingly restrictive, top-down and goals-driven policies as well as the recent cuts to youth work funding.
