Only Young Once - a bold vision for rebuilding youth services across the whole country
If elected the Labour Party would build a new delivery structure funding a national body to fund local partnerships of providers on the basis of their submitted development plans. They would enhance national collective bargaining, workforce development, insist on the provision of JNC qualified youth workers and recreate safe buildings and places of association. Young people would be involved in all key parts of the system.
The commitments to this are unequivocal, but will of course need to be in the general election manifesto, and the manifesto will need to win the majority of voters. We will continue to work closely on this as we have done so for many many years. We continue to hope and continue to fight for what young people deserve. Please continue to fight with us.
