The ‘In the Service of Youth‘ Conference 2016 takes place on Saturday 16th April, at London Metropolitan University.

This national conference aims to bring together youth work practitioners, policy makers, academics and commentators to discuss contemporary issues for the youth sector and develop actions for the Institute of Youth Work (IYW) to lead on over the next year.

Key discussions will include: 

  • promoting anti-oppressive practices nationwide
