Youth & Policy

The website aims are to:

  • highlight and critically debate contemporary issues relevant to young people in society, with particular reference to youth and community work and related professional interventions;
  • provoke dialogue between policy-makers, academics and practitioners; and
  • encourage high-quality contributions to debates around young people’s issues.

As well as producing the journal, we also organise related conferences, undertake research, and publish books and reports. Regular activities include the ‘History of Community and Youth Work’ and the ‘Thinking Seriously’ conferences.

The Youth & Policy editorial group works in partnership with a range of local and national voluntary and statutory organisations who have complementary purposes. These have included UK Youth, YMCA, Muslim Youth Council and Durham University.
