On the 24th July 2019, the Government held a debate in the House of Commons responding to the publication of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Youth Affairs enquiry into Youth Work

The debate included confirmation of a £500k training bursary intended to support up to 400 Youth Work students in their ambitions to qualify.

It was commented by IYW members and others that this represented a hugely positive discussion with cross-party support for youth work with some very moving personal accounts from Members of Parliament about how Youth Work has positively impacted them as they were growing up.  To watch the whole thing, follow this link.
