The last two years have been difficult for many young people, including the lasting impact of COVID and the cost of living crisis.
The NYCI believes that despite continued uncertainty, a real opportunity exists for Government to deliver sustainability to the youth work sector and security to young people.
We are asking Government to adopt our targeted plan for investment across youth work, the cost of living and youth homelessness to make an impact where it is most needed.
If put in place, this will provide immediate relief to many young people who are struggling with crippling costs, will address long-standing inequalities and, ensure that the youth work sector can deliver both now and into the future so young people can reach their full potential.
