Evaluation of the yOUTh Service (2021 Report)
6th May 2021
On April 22nd and April 29th we held two sessions of our showcase event. This event had a focus on the experiences of LGBT+ young people throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. It was best that the event highlight on the ease of adaptability of youth work and how workers are still very much capable of providing support and activities for the young people and have been doing so since the start of lockdown back in 2020.
Both sessions of the event ran smoothly and I’d once again like to extend my thanks to those who agreed to speak at the event. It was great to have such engaging conversations with all in attendance and especially so to hear from two service users and a parent of young person too. Such inspiring and powerful conversations to have.
We’re once again very grateful to Dr Eleanor Formby, Sheffield Hallam University and Dr Jo Woodiwiss, University of Huddersfield for researching and writing the report and again to the LGBT+ young people of Kirklees who participated in the research and evaluation and for contributing so much to the process.
