Direction of advocacy work

Across all three project partner countries, research participants desire policy and practice frameworks to support their work suggesting these would lead to greater accountability, enhanced professionalism and standardized planning and reflection models. These frameworks would support youth workers to uphold standards in their practice but would recognize that professionalism, time and depth continuity and sustainability are necessary to create the conditions for youth work to fulfil its best potential. Project participants recognise that this requires sustainable resourcing and the youth sector in each country must be involved in the formulation of such frameworks to ensure that they are fit for purpose.
