National Youth Agency is 50!

 The National Youth Agency has been operating for 50 years. Beginning as an information centre for youth services at the National College for the Training of Youth Leaders in Leicester, since then the organiastion has been the National Youth Bureau before becoming the National Youth Agency (NYA).

Despite changes in focus, their broad mission has remained largely the same; a commitment to young people and the role of youth work in supporting them.
Fiona Blacke, CEO of the NYA, commented:
“I am delighted we have reached this milestone. Over the years we have shaped our activities to offer support to youth work professionals and services.  Whilst it has been far from plain sailing we have continued to offer this support whilst modernising our function and purpose and developing our business. At 50 we are well equipped to continue offering that support well into the future.”
