Detached youth work creates a unique environment for non-formal and social education to take place within the community. From building confidence and teamwork to developing life and employability skills, detached work tackles the issues in the places young people choose to meet.
This workshop is for anyone new to street-based youth work. Exploring the different development stages from assessing young peoples’ need, making contact and participation through to evaluation and planning exit strategies, this training provides a sound understanding of the ethos and practice of detached youth work.



  • What ‘detached youth work’ is and how it differs from other youth work
  •  The difference between detached, outreach and mobile youth work
  • The roles and responsibilities of a detached worker
  • How to develop detached youth work projects using the process of mapping, assessing need and evidence-based practice
  • Tips and tricks for engaging young people effectively.
