Youth Leaders Network

The Youth Leaders Network was launched at the beginning of March 2021 for anyone who interacts with young people and would like to be involved in defining and delivering our national strategy for supporting youth groups.

"At first I wasn’t sure what could be gained from group conversations but after the first session I realised how important it is to get an idea of what everyone else in the sector are doing"
