This edition of the sector magazine gives an insight into the impact of youth work across a range of policy areas, from education through to mental health and employability.

We set out some of the recent national statistical data as well as local project examples, all with a clear evidence base.

Our influence as a sector cannot be underestimated. Youth workers across Scotland are the unsung heroes, often the last line of defence for communities grappling with the aftermath of Covid-19, the ongoing cost of living crisis, and rising food insecurity. Youth work’s collective influence is instrumental in addressing these pressing issues.

As funding for youth work becomes scarcer, funders and policymakers increasingly look for one thing: impact. This magazine gives a range of examples and case studies on how to evidence your impact, raise the voices of young people, all to influence change.
