Latest Developments

The Federation is now enjoying the benefits of being based at the National Youth Agency’s new premises in Leicester. We have an Administration and Finance Officer, Acomo Olule, who can be reached on fdyw@nya.org.uk or 0116 242 7490. Terry Cane continues to support the Federation in a consultancy role. Other functions are performed on an as and when basis by members of the Executive Committee.

We would recommend that if you are not already an existing member you join in order to take advantage of our services and reduced rates at conferences. This is a crucial time for the Detached Youth Work field. The publication of the Joseph Rowntree report into streetwork with young people has confirmed what we at the Federation already know – that this way of working offers a real opportunity to address the needs of young people and the needs of wider society.
