Opening doors for young disabled people to engage in youth work

31 Jan 2013

A new survey published by Ofsted today finds that more needs to be done to ensure disabled young people can access youth work provision available in their locality.

The survey report highlights where more could be done in the planning of youth services for disabled young people within a local area. It is intended to serve as a guide to local authorities and providers to identify the key factors that make schemes successful and adapt local provision accordingly.

The reported proportions of disabled young people who access local authority youth work provision were low. Inspectors found that some disabled young people were not known to local authorities so were potentially missing out on the services on offer.
