We hope our research will make a meaningful and practical contribution to practice, policy, thinking and research. We aim to share our research through a range of academic and non-academic methods. Our project was recently featured here in a Children and Young People Now special issue on youth work impact. For a more in-depth discussion, Tania’s open access academic article in the peer-reviewed Journal of Education Policy draws on her previous research to discuss ‘Youth work, performativity and the new youth impact agenda’. Tania has also written blog pieces on youth impact here and here. Louise and Tania will be discussing the research and its international relevance at the forthcoming Transformative Youth Work International Conference in Plymouth. Tania presented the research at the Czech Streetwork Association’s conference in Prague, and will be speaking at Lancaster University later in the autumn.
