Youth Work Week in North Lanarkshire 2022

The focus of Youth Work Week 2022 is youth work’s contribution to tackling poverty.

It’s all about showcasing the critical role of our sector, in breaking down the barriers that young people experience, from education to mental health through to employability and equality.

More than one in four children and young people are officially recognised as living in poverty in Scotland. This can have a significant impact on health and wellbeing, access to services, educational attainment and pathways to employment. In addition, many young people currently experience poverty related stigma and discrimination. Youth work plays a vital role supporting the needs of young people whilst ensuring they have equal access to services and that their voices are heard.

Across North Lanarkshire, the youth work team will run a series of special events and activities to promote the youth work service and engage young people in daily themed activities.
