'What do you think about the future of the Youth Sector?'

Ambition, NCVYS and UK Youth invite you to participate in a joint consultation regarding the needs of the youth sector, including support arrangements, funding, sector voice and representation, support of practice and workforce development.


This particular consultation is closing on 31st December 2015 following a number of face-to-face events that took place in November and December.


The Association's Chair, Jane Melvin, and our Support and Development Officer, Paul Fenton, have contributed to two of these events but invite members/colleagues to provide their own responses via the 'open call' for further feedback on development of the sector.


You are therefore invited to provide a written/on-line response to the consultation by 31st December 2015.


There are two ways to participate:


1. Download this Word File, complete and return it via the link provided.


2. Follow this link to a 'linkedin' forum: (you will need to join linkedin to use this method)


The three lead agencies, Ambition, NCVYS and UK Youth, will be collating feedback for publication in January 2016 and the Association is inviting feedback from this process in to our own consultation events being held throughout March 2016. See our 'Shaping the Future' pages for more details.
