A Network of Regional Youth Work Units, in England, collaborating across regions to promote good youth work and young people’s voices.
Networking between individuals and organisations is at the heart of our work and is vital to enable the optimum strategic understanding of youth work developments, share best practice and promote effective and efficient joint working across sectors. We believe that our networks and relationships are our ‘best sellers’ – our combined USP.
RYWUs coordinate networks which cross both the statutory and voluntary youth sectors. Together, our networks link to thousands of organisations and individuals delivering services to young people.
We support our networks through a wide range of regional groups, such as integrated youth support service networks, voluntary youth sector coordinating bodies and workforce development groups. The Unit operate as a hub to their networks and offer a single entry point into services to young people at a local and regional level.
