Youth & Community Workers - Key Worker Status

The National Youth & Community Workers' Committee believed youth workers to be a special case, particularly in light of difficulties in recruitment and retention. Following discussions at the JNC, the Secretary of the Employers’ Side together with the Secretary of the Trade Union Side wrote to the Minister for clarification; a copy of the response is attached to the circular. The Committee will discuss the response at their meeting in September. Discussion will also take place at the JNC.
