Policy/legal framework

There is no policy or legal framework relating specifically to youth work to foster social inclusion. However, youth work is generally understood as a means of fostering social inclusion through open meeting places and social arenas where children and young people from all social groups can meet and participate on equal terms.

Main inclusive Youth-Work programmes and target groups

There are no programmes funded or organised by top level authorities.
