Through our networks and contacts we know the youth sector in the region well, and can bring together different organisations to share practice and build on the best. Our experience of partnership building and our knowledge of the youth sector means we can support organisations to develop partnership approaches that can meet the needs of local young people.

We use our networks and regular communications with the field to inform people of developments, encourage South West-based organisations to benefit from initiatives, and support local partnerships of youth organisations. We plan to extend our Network offer to include a regular Youth Policy Forum for the South West during 2020, as the youth sector responds to the challenges faced by young people as a result of the COVID19 pandemic.
