Written by a detached youth worker together with his partner, and illustrated with case studies, photographs and posters involving young people with whom he has worked for many years, this book brings to life the fun, enjoyment, challenges and difficulties of detached youth work everywhere. It also contains numerous photocopiable project management documents. You can adapt them to support your work, whether you are a detached worker, a manager, or in a partner agency. Flexible and responsive, detached youth work works - in a wide variety of social settings - providing focused support for young people within communities, in places where they congregate. Showing how to put it into practice, this guidebook: can help workers and managers develop effective methods of working with young people, enabling them to explore life choices and encouraging positive change, personally and as members of communities; will support and inspire both experienced and new workers - and others employed in human services - to value and use detached youth work as a means of social and personal education, as well as a means of helping and supporting socially disadvantaged young people, especially when more traditional or commercial youth provision is unaffordable, inappropriate or fails to meet their needs.
