Nya Youth Work Enquiry 2019

All respondents of this inquiry had experience of the youth sector (voluntary and public) and included representatives of national, regional and local youth organisations, youth centres and local councils, local youth services development managers, youth workers and those in training, academics, representatives of army welfare services and police bodies, and young people themselves.
