Webinar: Targeted Detached Youth Work
February 18 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Detached youth work has long been recognised as an effective way to engage those young people considered vulnerable or ‘at risk’ who choose not to access building based youth provision.
In the past few months this has been especially true with lockdown restrictions in place and a media focus on young people in relation to Covid-19. The 3rd in this unique detached training series; This workshop starts by exploring why some young people are considered more vulnerable than others, the legislation and police powers that affect them (including stop & search) and the impact of peers, family and community on decisions made.
It moves on to consider how detached youth work can engage effectively to help to build the resilience to make safer choices. This is an opportunity for practitioners to explore risk and protective factors, the impact of ACE’s and discuss effective ways to engage young people and share good practice.
- Consider how current legislation affects young people and the role of the media in perpetuating negative stereotypes
- Why some young people are considered more ‘at risk’ than others and the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

- Identify ways to work with partners to reduce risk in the community
- Consider effective ways to target vulnerable young people and engage them in youth work to build resilience.
