Although the current Covid-19 restrictions mean we can only welcome limited numbers in pre-bookable sessions, we continue to encourage the most vulnerable to join, through our work with Westminster City Council’s Family Hub, the Integrated Gangs and Exploitation Unit and other local services.
This joined up approach is endorsed by an Open Access Youth Work report, by Partnership for Young London et al, which concludes: evidence shows that links and networks between the youth workers and other services …. when joined-up, ‘participants experienced outcomes such as higher levels of social skills learning, greater self-efficacy, higher levels of community service, and greater cognitive competence’. These are relationships and partnerships we continue to build. Read the report here.
