In April 2019, the APPG on Youth Affairs published the final report of their Youth Work Inquiry.
Ciaran, a member of Dare London, our youth advisory board, was quoted:
You’re a team, the minute you’re in a youth group. It lays foundations as to how you grow; you learn from one another.
The report also quoted from our submission to the inquiry, which you can read here:
The balance between prevention and intervention has tipped towards intervention, as increasingly constrained resources have been diverted towards the most obvious needs. This has had the effect of a lack of early help for young people whose needs may not be immediately obvious or who may not meet intervention criteria.
