On April 1st 2020, The Strategic Youth Work Partnership will celebrate its first year in operation.
The partnership, in collaboration with the Gannochy Trust and Perth and Kinross Council, has begun investing in local youth work agencies across five localities. In total, £900,000 will be invested over a three-year period. The partnership has already had a significant impact with nearly 2300 young people aged between 11-19 benefitting from 18,000 Universal Youth Work sessions. These have provided a place for young people to go, reducing isolation, creating a sense of belonging and providing new experiences and opportunities for learning in an informal setting.
