December 2012 - Priorities for Youth - Department of Education

Youth@clc told government that youth work was important and could play an important role in improving young people's confidence, mental health and their development in general.  Youth@clc also thought that youth work could help you gain useful skills for life and work. It should be open to all young people, and should always be led by young people as they know best what works and what doesn't work.

Youth@clc's views were included in CLC's full response to the Department of Education's consultation on the Priorities for Youth Strategy. CLC members can access CLC's consultation response through the Members' Area

September 2012 - Reducing Offending - Department of Justice

Youth@clc told us that they could understand some of the pressures and circumstances that might cause some young people to commit a criminal offence. Youth@clc feel strongly that some young people need better support from government and from the communities they live in, to prevent them from getting involved in criminal behaviour.  They also felt that peer support programmes could be an effective way of reducing offending.
