StreetSpace with Frontier Youth Trust and Church Urban Fund, are seeking ways to help local churches respond to the growing marginalisation of the most deprived young people in the country. In the light of growing youth unemployment and civil unrest over the summer, many churches would like to do more to support young people in their community. Partnering with YOUTHWORK they are gathering evidence from church-based youth workers, with a view to helping churches develop a cost effective and manageable youth work response.
