Youth work and youth policy in the Republic of Ireland 1983-2008: ‘Still haven’t found what we’re looking for ...?’

Conclusion: 
This report concludes that there is a need for an overall agreed policy that facilitates regular planning for the future and review of performance and co-ordination of all services to youth. The author highlights the absence of inter-departmental or inter-ministerial systems to ensure youth work coordination and refers to the need to retain a core sense of vision and purpose regarding the relational, educational and associative mission of youth work, in a climate of increasing outcome-focused accountability. Highlighted is the possible opportunity at local level to use youth work’s new institutional foothold as a way of building relationships with other relevant groups and with young people themselves as a step forward.
