THE HISTORY OF THE YOUTH SERVICE IN NORTHERN IRELAND (1844-1973)

The Youth Council initiated a collaboration with the Ulster University to produce a history of  the youth service in the context of the North of Ireland,  tracing its roots back to 1844.  Our respective bodies have worked in close partnership and are proud to publish this first volume covering the period 1844 to 1973; we will continue this co-operation to produce a second volume which brings the Northern Ireland youth service story up to the present day.

The timeline split reflects two of the most significant watersheds for the youth service across Northern Ireland - the establishment of the statutory youth service in 1973, and the current transformation (2015) of the youth service as a result of the implementation of the Department of Education's new policy, "Priorities for Youth", coupled with the major changes in education structures here.
