We need a New Deal for Young People
Rebuilding youth services for young people must be part and parcel of a new deal for all young people.
The recent report from the All Party Parliamentary Group on youth affairs, sponsored by the NYA, studied the importance of the Youth Service and Youth Work and made a number of very important recommendations.
Lloyd Russell Moyle and others were due to lead a three hour debate in Parliament on the findings of the report and wider issues next week but due to Parliamentary business being moved this will now not take place until September.
A hundred and twenty people signed up to attend the event and we are disappointed that we have had to postpone it but look forward to working with the NYA and MPs to ensure that we are in Parliament on the day to hear the debate broadcast live. As soon as new details are available we will of course publish them and hope that lots will attend and urge their MPs to support the debate.
Useful resources about lobbying MPs are available:
We look forward to seeing you in September.
