PIEs in youth services

On 11th November, 2021, from 12.30 to 2pm, as part of the PIElink community of practice lunchtime forums, Season Three (HERE), we have a discussion on PIEs in youth services.

A high proportion of those wha had attended the Seasons One and Two forums were working in youth services; and this seems a fairly accurate reflection of the extent to which it is youth homelessness services that have adopted the PIE approach with the most enthusiasms, at least in the early days of the PIElink..

It may be that there is something in the spirit of PIE that appeals most readily to youth services, where an element of optimism about a future that can be different from the present is hard to suppress.

But is there something different, or even particular to youth services, that we might still want to bring put more clearly? What can we learn in particular for a focus on youth.  The forum on 11th November will make a start in exploring this.

And as ever with the forums, we may hope to put people and services in touch with each other that have something in common, to learn from and to support each other..
