A FRAMEWORK FOR EFFECTIVE INTERVENTIONS is based on the learning from the Youth Works programme. It is a practical guide to the implementation of a personal and social development programme, rooted in a youth work approach, which has proven successful in identifying and engaging young people with the complex needs and issues.

Although the Youth Works programme was initially designed for work with young people not in education, training or employment, the Framework has been developed in such a way that it can be adapted and transferred to work with other young people experiencing compound difficulties and blockages to realising their potential.
